(Imperial) There is a late entry in the contest to redraw Missouri’s congressional districts.
The new map is nearly identical to the original that was passed by the House last January.
It would provide two “safe” districts for Democrats in and around St. Louis and Kansas City.
The map is sponsored by Republican Representative Dan Shaul of Jefferson County.
Shaul’s first map was passed by the Missouri Senate after several changes were made.
Then, there was an effort to replace it with maps containing seven “safe” Republican seats and only one for Democrats.
