Take a look at the new 7th District before you say that

They've taken away the societal leeches from the Western edge of his current district and replaced it with a solid Republican, high-income area that isn't familiar with Mike at all.

As always, I'm ready to support him financially and vote for him, but unless he can sell himself (quickly) to those folks, he won't be able to pull it off. They'll simply vote for the "R" candidate, just as those in Robeson County simply vote for Mike because he has a "D" following his name.

As I said below, I'd urge him to switch parties if the district lines remain as proposed. He's a good man and I've been proud to vote for him, but the political deck will be stacked against him unless he takes action to blunt the effects of re-districting.
