Senate redistricting plan would put Horry in new district

Jun 21, 2011 11:39:00 AM - thestate.com
All of Horry County is contained within a new Pee Dee Congressional District, according to a plan adopted by a Senate subcommittee Tuesday.

The map is the third proposed by Senate staff, and the full Senate Judiciary will take up the plan this afternoon.

Many of the current districts look familiar, though slightly tweaked in the new plan.

Locally, the 6th Congressional District of U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-Columbia, would be significantly reshaped, stretching from Columbia to Georgetown and Jasper counties. In the Upstate, portions of Spartanburg County would be carved off and moved to the 5th District of U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-Indian Land. U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy's, R-Spartanburg, 4th District would include all of Greenville County.

The 2nd District of U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson, R-Springdale, would add more of Aiken County and trim counties along Interstate 95.
