As an incoming House Member in 2008, Rep. Gary Peters drew the No. 1 pick in the freshman office lottery. But the Congressman isn't feeling so lucky now after his district was dismantled in redistricting.
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) signed a new Congressional map into law Tuesday.
The new map, drawn by the Republican-controlled state Legislature, puts Democratic Reps. Sander Levin and Gary Peters into the same district. The state lost a seat in reapportionment because of population loss.
Peters appears to be in the biggest bind under the new lines, as his current district was basically dismantled and he faces the prospect of having to challenge a veteran fellow Democrat or run in a district that favors the GOP.
Visitors get their first look at the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, which opened to the public on Monday, Oct. 6, 2014. The new memorial is located off Independence Ave. SW between the Rayburn House Office Building and HHS. Buy photo here.
