The 9th district is only one of the areas sparking debate in the Senate. Jenny Hoff has more from Jefferson City.
Columbia Senator Ken Jacob and fellow Democrats are putting up a fight in the Senate to change the current Congressional redistricting plan and make Columbia the power house of the 9th district.
Jacob says his interest in the 9th district doesn't necessarily mean he wants to run against Representative Kenny Hulshof in 2002.
He says the reason he won't run is not because he wouldn't win but because he doesn't have the resources to campaign against Hulshof.
Jacob says it would be best to remove St. Charles from the district and add rural counties such as Washington and Lincoln. From Jefferson City, this is Jenny Hoff...KMOX-News.
