They ought to draw a Western district, an Eastern district a Southern district, a Louisville district and then districts based around the Cincinnati suburbs and Lexington&etc respective made up from whatever else is left. Not in the interests of either party to draw that map, so it won't happen. Alas.

Yeah, the logical thing to do would be to draw a district based on Bowling Green to an extent.

...I don't get it.

At a quick glance, it makes Chandler ever-so-slightly safer. It also makes the Whitfield and Rogers districts somewhat easier to target in the event of retirement and/or death.
