I was surprised to see that the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee's press release trumpeting the party's pickups in three special elections in recent days trumpets their meaning in terms of redistricting:
"Gains at the state legislative level have a long-term effect," said DLCC Executive Director Michael Sargeant. "We're changing the conversation in the states, making sure Democrats have a seat at the table for redistricting, and training the future leaders."
Florida, New York, and Virginia all cut Congressional and legislative district lines in their state legislatures.
Shouldn't DLCC, of all organizations, show some love for state legislators in terms other than seeing them as a farm team and line-drawers for Congress?
