Talk:Tennessee's 2nd congressional district

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

There seems to be an unnecessarily negative sentiment toward democrats and confusing racial implications. Also, the article assumes that college students are liberal, which may generally be the case, but UT seems to be more of a reflection of the region from which its students came. The majority of the students here are from strong republican counties across the South, particularly areas such as the mountains and the southern suburbs of Nashville. I take offense to the statement that we UT students are apolitical, as many of us are politically active and registered in Knox County. When I have more time, I will try to cleanup the article a little if no one else has already taken care of it. Rhodesgomer (talk) 16:56, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

District origin[edit]

According to the House's website, Tennessee was divided into districts from the 9th Congress on. XinaNicole (talk) 03:54, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

I don't see anything in that source that says Tennessee was divided into districts. I just see three representatives. Bms4880 (talk) 14:44, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
Three representatives who are not listed as "Representatives at large". Compare the page for the 8th Congress which shows Tennessee's representatives as "Representatives at large", and also states such as New Hampshire in the 9th Congress which did have at-large representation. Those are labelled as "Representatives at large". XinaNicole (talk) 05:40, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
