From the rumor mill - Are Clinton Republicans expendable?
As we've already noted today, Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant (R) has worked with an outside consultant to prepare his own redistricting plan. We're not sure he actually has the guts to release it, though, as it is sure to anger supporters in some areas. Word around the Senate is that one of those areas will be the Republican-leaning city of Clinton, which Bryant is allegedly going to split into two majority black Senate districts, effectively blocking Clinton Republicans from Senate races.
