The Redistricting Battle Ohio Republican lawmakers, as is their right being in the majority, redrew the state's Congressional boundaries last year. The result? Districts that, in most cases, appear to favor Republicans at the ballot box. Democrats cried foul and circulated petitions to change the way districts are drawn. The issue will go before voters in November, but will the alternative be any better or fairer? Let's talk about it, Tuesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
