Buoyed by a major change in the 6th District's political leanings, Democrat John Delaney rolled to a large win over incumbent Republican Roscoe G. Bartlett in Tuesday's election. More than half of Delaney's votes came from Democrat-rich Montgomery County, thanks to last year's redistricting. With 97 percent of precincts reporting by Wednesday morning, Delaney had 59 percent of the vote and Bartlett had 38 percent, according to unofficial results for the five-county district. Libertarian Nickolaus Mueller trailed with about 3 percent.

Local Republicans are crying foul over a proposed congressional redistricting plan that would radically redraw District 6 - currently represented by Republican Rep. Roscoe Bartlett - to include much of Democrat-heavy Montgomery County. "I think it is very much a gerrymandered map that has been promulgated for very partisan reasons and splits up communities of interest, specifically our Western Maryland constituency, and the sole reason they're doing it is to try to pick up an extra seat for the Democrats," state Sen. Christopher B. Shank, R-Washington, said Friday.

The primary election is Tuesday, and the attempt by Gov. Martin O'Malley and state Democratic leaders to defeat Roscoe Bartlett in the 6th District is the most interesting issue of this election. As required following a national Census, congressional districts are redrawn to reflect population shifts. O'Malley did a masterful job redrawing districts all across the state. A study of the statewide map is a lesson in the absolute best, or worst, of gerrymandering. It would appear the governor's goal is a one-party state.

Petition's goal is to put redistricting on ballot To the editor: Due to the congressional redistricting plan put in place by Gov. O'Malley, for at least the next 10 years Western Maryland will be in the same congressional district as Montgomery County. Congressman Bartlett's seat will likely go to a representative from the Montgomery County area. This is not about Democrat or Republican. The question is: Do you want to be represented by someone with the interests of a rural area or one from a densely populated urban setting?

Several weeks ago, a local columnist excused the poor performance of some members of our delegation to the Maryland General Assembly by presenting the idea that the implementation of “one man, one vote” legal opinions (and follow on legislation) in both houses of legislatures across America had co-opted the individual authority and power of some legislators. Specifically, that columnist's premise, as I understood it, intimated that changing the reach of Maryland state senators from county-specific to district-specific (size and geography based upon population)
