The Missouri House redistricting committee passed its plan for congressional districts

The Missouri House redistricting plan may put one incumbent congressman at risk in the next election. Seth Bachelier has more from Jefferson City...

OutCue: SOC

The House redistricting committee passed their new plan for congressional districts with a 12-6 vote.

And Representative Bill Ransdall says the only change is the city of Ashland is no longer split between districts.

Actuality:ransdall
RunTime: 11 seconds
OutCue: "up beside that."
Contents: Ransdall says Ashland has been reunited in the ninth district, which is held by Republican Kenny Hulshof, and part of the rural population was moved to fill the gap.

But, Republican Representative John Griesheimer says he still thinks the plan is gerrymandering because congressman Hulshof is the only incumbent to have their district split.

Griesheimer also says St. Francois and Washington counties are now in the ninth district for the first time.

From Jefferson City, I'm Seth Bachelier.

The only change made from last week's map is that the city of Ashland has been reunited into the ninth district.

But, Republican Representative John Griesheimer still thinks the plan is gerrymandering.

OutCue: "any other conclusion."
Contents: Griesheimer says he thinks the Democrats are out to get Hulshof's seat back.

Hulshof is the only incumbent to have their home county split.

But, Democratic Representative Bill Ransdall says he is willing to redraw the lines again.
