In 2011, the Georgia State Legislature re-drew the congressional districts based on updated population information from the 2010 census.
On August 22, 2011, Georgia Republican leadership released their proposed Congressional redistricting map. Due to population growth, Georgia gained a 14th Congressional district following the 2010 census. The new district, according to the plan, will be located in the northwestern part of the state. U.S. Rep. Tom Graves (R) was drawn into the new district, leaving his current 9th District seat open in 2012. The new 9th District will lean Republican. In addition, the plan displaces US Rep. John Barrow (D), but Barrow (who has been displaced before) planned to move in order to remain in the 12th District. US Rep. Sanford Bishop's (D) district will become a majority-minority district. Also, U.S. Rep. Phil Gingrey's (R) 11th District will pick up part of Atlanta. Overall, the plan is expected to bolster the Republican majority in the state's Congressional delegation.
