Supporters of a 7-1 Missouri GOP congressional map plan to rally Tuesday at the Missouri Capitol in Jefferson City.
The Senate Conservative Caucus has tweeted that that gathering begins this morning at 10, with the rally beginning at noon. Freedom Convoy supporters are being told to bring blankets and food and warm clothes.
The Senate remains in a stalemate over the controversial issue of congressional redistricting, and has voted 24-8 against the 7-1 map. Supporters of 7-1 say Missouri is a bright-red state, while Republicans who favor a 6-2 map worry a 7-1 map will end up in the courts.
The Senate met on Lincoln’s birthday on Friday, a state holiday, and held a very rare Saturday session as a filibuster by the Senate Conservative Caucus continues.
The Missouri Senate will gavel-in this afternoon at 2.
Why are we redistricting in the first place? Is someone trying to appease someone else? I guess i have been living under a rock. What is a 7-1 map? I think this is all a waste of time and money. Wasted on something that never should have been brought up. If we waste money and time on this, let spend money and time on researching the top speed smell. Government needs to find something constructive to do with their time. Stop wasting my money on this crap.
