From Roll Call:

Rep. Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia has been appointed deputy chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee for the 2014 election cycle by incoming NRCC Chairman Greg Walden of Oregon.

Westmoreland oversaw a very successful nationwide redistricting effort for the NRCC during the 2012 cycle, helping the GOP keep control of the House on Nov. 6.

The decennial redraw of maps helped push a number of vulnerable GOP-held seats into the safe Republican category, creating a map that would likely require a wave election if Democrats are to be successful in taking back the House.

Let’s look at this, “Westmoreland oversaw a very successful nationwide redistricting effort for the NRCC”, do the results match the prose?

Republicans in the House lost about the same percentage has Senate seats were lost. This was considered disastrous by most pundits. In addition, in Georgia the only democrat targeted for defeat won easily. If that is “very successful” I wonder what the definition of failure might be.

Is this the same Kent Kingsley that came in last in a 3 man race for the 3rd District GOP Primary?
