21. It would be mighty nice to have a Dem in the governor's mansion there,

especially when the next census is taken. There always seem to be complications - some of them rather suspicious (talkin' to YOU, Kenneth Blackwell!). It'd be great to have a Democratic governor overseeing all that, this time.

You've GOTTA have Dems win the tens. The "zero years" - 2020, 2030, 2040, 2050, etc. The CENSUS is taken every ten years. If a Democrat is in charge at the statehouse when the census is taken, its results determine reapportionment of Congressional districts. As we've seen again and again and again, if the GOP controls the governor's chair, there WILL be gerrymandering of districts to benefit the CONS. They will do everything they can to rig the game in their favor, in the ways they re-draw the districts to conform to changes in population numbers. We've SEEN this. And while there are challenges being filed, and court cases being won, those thing take time.
