Redistricting under way, Sandy Adams looks to protect her turf

adams1229.jpgCongresswoman Sandy Adams, the Orlando Republican who took a seat from Democrats in the 2010 mid-term elections, is taking no chances in the upcoming redrawing of congressional lines. She is urging supporters to show up at legislative redistricting hearings and express support for a "strong conservative voice."

An e-mail her campaign sent out today reads: "2012 is shaping up to be a critical election in our nation’s history. With trillion dollar deficits, a president maxing out the nation’s credit limit, and a Democrat Senate bent on stopping every responsible bill passed by the House - something must be done.

Here in Florida one of the most important things that will take place this summer and next winter is the redrawing of congressional lines to do the decennial redistricting. As you know, Florida is gaining two seats, and Central Florida is likely home to one of them.

The Florida Legislature is currently engaged in a series of listening sessions to get your input about how you would like the new lines to be drawn.  There are several meetings that will be held in or close to the 24th Congressional District, and I wanted to make sure you had that information.

With so much at stake in this election, I will need your support to speak out and let your friends and neighbors know that you want a strong conservative voice like Sandy Adams representing you in Congress in 2012. Together we can fight the liberal agenda of President Obama and Harry Reid and put a strong Republican in the White House, keep our majority in the House, and take back the Senate."
