Name that District contest: Pennsylvania’s 7th district

Meehan’s Delaware County-based 7th district, which is currently a relatively aesthetically pleasing blob just west of Philadelphia, turns into a Rorschach Test of a district under a redistricting proposal released last week that shores up Meehan and other Philadelphia-area Republicans.

The district zigs and zigs around the area now — only several hundred feet wide at certain points — bringing areas of five counties into a relatively small suburban district that now includes both areas close to Philadelphia and rural Lancaster County.

But what does it look like to you? We want to know!

For the next installment in our “Name that District” contest, we ask you to tell us just what this looks like to you.

So take to the comments section below. The winner gets a Fix T-shirt!
