Everyone keeps saying that the most likely congressional district that will be targeted for elimination is PA12, formerly held by the late John Murtha and now with Mark Critz as the incumbent. I still say that eliminating just one seat in Pennsylvania will force significant boundary changes across the entire state. Just to get folks pondering on that, imagine how the void created by 12 will be carved out just within SW PA.. and then begin to consider what secondary impacts that will have in further districts. Just to begin, you are not going to keep the meticulously crafted PA18 looking anything like what it does.
