Well, like it or not, Missourians have a brand spanking new Congressional Map.  The Missouri House and Senate today, both voted to override Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of the proposed map.  In the House, Republicans needed 109 votes to override, which required the support of 4 Democrats.  It then passed in the Senate by a margin of 28-6.

Governor Nixon vetoed this congressional map saying essentially, it did not represent Missouri’s diverse nature.  However, I am happy to see that Randolph County will not be split, as it was in prior maps.  And not only Randolph County being split, but in prior versions, the city of Moberly was actually split, which would elevate confusion, to say the least.

So, take it or leave it, this is what we are left with.  Randolph County moves from Republican Blaine Luetkemeyer, to Republican and Tea Party favorite, Vicky Hartzler.  We shall see how this works.  Don’t hold your breath, folks.

We however, have already sent out a welcome to Vicky Hartzler.
