As Republicans, we know Rick will go to the mat for us because he has done that before at great cost to his own political reputation. He called special sessions of the legislature to get it done. I am not so sure we can count on Kay to stand strong against the Democrats who will try their usual tricks if they don't get their way. Kay is more likely to cave to the pressure to avoid controversy... building consensus above doing the right thing... I think Rick's peeps ought to get this out there more in the grassroots. When this topic comes up to Republican activists I know, they always give Rick major kudos for going out of his way to help redistrict more Republicans into place and make the state more accurately reflect the partisan composition of the state.
