Ann Kirkpatrick’s Decision Leads To A Political Battle
The majority that the Democratic party has in the House, is not a strong one. Situations are not much in favour of the party as the opposition party have made a promise to make the 2nd district of Ann Kirkpatrick, a target. All the Republican party is waiting for is an opportunity for a flip. It will probably be an interesting battle to watch between the two parties. The Democrats will do everything in their power to continue their hold while the Republicans work to change the norm.
It is highly expected that a congressional district of number 10 will be assigned to the state. Owing to this reason, there will be a redistribution for the wild card.
