As the Redistricting Pen Turns
Rumors sizzle with regards to the Tennessee Senate
Campfield told The Examiner that many in the Senate aren't yet sure just what the new districts will look like. "We are supposed to be having a Senate Republican Caucus retreat very soon, and at that gathering, we are being told that we will come to know the future of our districts and what kind of situation we'll be dealing with at the next election." Campfield did confirm that the redistricting rumor mill is spinning regarding Senate Democratic Leader Jim Kyle (D-Memphis). "Obviously, we don't know for sure yet, but Kyle looks like he may be put in a position where he ends up in the same district as another Democrat," Campfield said.
