The Washington Post Online Cites Rose Institute Study on Louisiana Redistricting

The Washington Post‘s Chris Cillizza cited the Rose Institute’s study on Louisiana redistricting on his “The Fix” politics blog on Friday.  Cillizza’s post was the latest in his series “Friday House Line” which every few weeks describes the ten most competitive House races in 2010.  In discussing the 2010 Congressional election in Louisiana’s 3rd district (currently held by Democrat Charlie Melancon who is running for Senate in 2010) Cillizza wrote:

Races in Louisiana are notoriously slow to develop but the underlying demographics of this seat — 37 percent of the vote for Obama in 2008 — don’t bode well for a Democratic hold. Recruiting for this race is further complicated by the fact that Louisiana is widely expected to lose a seat in the decennial redistricting and this district appears to be the most likely to go.
