New congressional map could bring big changes

(WMC-TV) - A proposed new congressional redistricting map could mean moving Representative Marsha Blackburn out of Shelby and Fayette Counties.

Right now, Blackburn represents the 7th Congressional District, which covers Germantown, and some of Collierville and Bartlett.

Representative Stephen Fincher's 8th District will stretch out farther east.  Representative Steve Cohen's 9th District will include the northwest corner of Shelby County.

Shelby County will only have two congressional districts if the plan passes.
