11. Yes! Exactly!

And when we win "their" seats, it makes the rest of them nervous. There is no other way to look at this except very good for us and bad for them.

12. I don't know.

That's why I added the source of the info. Maybe another DUer will tell me, "Oh never trust ballotpedia, they make crap up." Or maybe New Hampshire is just weird.

They seem legit with an extremely cursory look into who/what/why they are.

17. Holy Schnikes!

The House of Representatives consists of 400 members coming from 204 legislative districts across the state, created from divisions of the state's counties. On average, each legislator represents about 3,300 residents. - Wikipedia

They must ask people in their districts what they want to do one by one.

19. State law requires that reps can't live more than 500 feet from any constituent.

LOL

23. 400 is true. And PA thanks NH or

we would have the biggest legislature at 253. 203 reps and 50 senators. Don't ask me why there's 50 and not 67 senators (1 for each county).

6. One seat closer

Republicans might want to consider their options ahead of the 2018 general.
