Justin Buchler discusses Ohio’s new redistricted map

Ohio lumps 2 GOP districts as it loses House seats

Associated Press: Ohio’s new congressional landscape will be downsized to combine two Republican districts in southern Ohio and two Democratic districts in northeast Ohio. The new map sounds relatively nonpartisan to Justin Buchler, associate professor of political science. “Combining districts tends to be less common (around the country), usually because it’s considered a little bit more unseemly,” he said.
