Redistricting May Change Political Races in KS

Kansas lawmakers are starting the long process of redrawing the state's congressional districts. Kansas has 4 seats in the U-S House of Representatives, which need to have similar populations. Douglas County is currently split between the 2nd and 3rd districts, but that could change. Joe Aistrup (“A-strup”, "EH-strup") is a political science professor at Kansas State University. He spoke with KPR’s Stephen Koranda. Aistrup says changing the 2nd Congressional District may change the political prospects of Republican Representative Lynn Jenkins. Aistrup says the city of Manhattan may be taken out of the 2nd congressional district altogether.

That’s K-State Political Science professor Joe Aistrup. He was speaking with KPR’s Stephen Koranda. Legislative committees will be working on redistricting this summer.
