Redistricting

2010-2011

This is the 10th Congressional District of Virginia after the 2001 redistricting process.

In 2011, the Virginia State Legislature re-drew the congressional districts based on updated population information from the 2010 census.

In redistricting, The Hill published a list of the Top Ten House Members who were helped by redistricting.[9] Gerald Connolly ranked 8th on the list.[9] The article notes that Connolly inadvertently benefits from a Republican plan to build up Republican incumbent districts in the redistricting process. Connolly's 11th District will lose portions of its Republican base to neighboring Frank Wolf's 10th District, resulting in a more Democratic district for Connolly.[9]. However, unless Virginia Republicans are able to win two seats in the state House, the plan will not go through and redistricting will be left up to the courts.[9]
