COTTONMOUTH – Jackson attorney Dorsey Carson (D) to challenge Rep. Bill Denny (R)

By: Magnolia Tribune - March 8, 2011

A new challenge for Rep. Bill Denny

This seat is very competitive under the current maps, but less so under the House plan that passed last week. Currently, District 64 has a black voting age population (called “BVAP” amongst redistricting wonks and the DOJ) of 39.5%. Under the House plan, the BVAP drops to 26.5%. In addition to jettisoning 13% BVAP, which traditionally is heavily Democratic, Rep. Denny also picks up Jackson’s Eastover neighborhood, which is home to tons of Republican money.
