One of the loudest complainers about the House consensus plan was Kent Alexander, whom you will remember from this. You see Alexander, aside from running for president at an undisclosed time, had also decided to run this year against Rep. Dirk Dedeaux, chairman of the House Medicaid Committee. The only problem was, when the House consensus plan was released, Alexander and Dedeaux no longer lived in the same district.
That led to much whining and gnashing of teeth from Alexander, as he screamed that he'd been "gerrymandered" out of District 93 by Dedeaux. Well, guess what? When the Mississippi Republican Party drafted their alternative plan, they drew Alexander out of District 93 also.
If I'm Alexander, that hurts. A lot.
