Yesterday, the New Hampshire House panel charged with drawing the new congressional maps sided with Rep. Frank Guinta and left the districts essentially unchanged.  There are only two members of Congress from New Hampshire; Charlie Bass and Frank Guinta.  Bass wanted to alter the map and move some Republican towns from Guinta’s district into his own.  From our perspective, Guinta is much more conservative than Bass.  We’d rather keep Gunta’s district more winnable, especially when the alternative would have required some gerrymandering.
