Here are a few screen shots of the maps for Senate and House of Delegates. As leaked Delegate Habeeb (R-8) has Craig County and eastern Montgomery County. It is hard to decipher if the 11th or 17th have changed much. But the rumors of Senator Ralph Smith being redistricted out were true. He is in with Senator Newman another Republican. If you remember he said he’d move so I suspect Senator John Edwards is in for a contest.
** JUST IN SENATOR RALPH SMITH WILL MOVE TO SENATOR JOHN EDWARDS DISTRICT AND CHALLENGE him in November – “a 100% certainty” says a source.
Looks like Vinton has moved from 11th HOD to 17th HOD and 11th now takes most of SORO. The 17th (Roanoke County) wraps around Roanoke like a giant pacman ready to gobble up the city.
At first I thought they just threw away the 10th district along with Ward Armstrong but they just shoved it up north. This has totally driven them bonkers in NOVA. Armstrong’s Martinsville is in the 16th with Republican Don Merricks. Should be an interesting election cycle coming up.

March 28: According to Virginia Virtucon the new districts for Virginia Senate and House of Delegates will be unveiled Tuesday. One district leak has the 8th House of Delegates seat held by Republican Greg Habeeb taking all of Craig County and the eastern portion of Montgomery County.
Democrat James Schuler has Craig County now so it will be interesting to see what he picks up if anything [gulp]. Republican David Nutter has the eastern part of Montgomery County.
Keep your eyes open tomorrow cuz someone’s going to be out of a job.
