Republican supporter of non-partisan redistricting gets double-bunked

But Jon Hardister has a fix for that, says he will move to Whitsett:

State Rep. Jon Hardister (R-Greensboro) plans on moving to eastern Guilford County to avoid having to run against a GOP colleague under the Republican-led redistricting proposal legislators are poised to adopt.

In the new plan being finalized this week, Hardister and state Rep. John Faircloth (R-High Point) both live in Guilford County’s proposed state House of Representatives’ District 61. Faircloth represents the current District 61 and plans to run for re-election in 2018.

I'm tempted to act all Nostradamus-like because this is almost exactly what I warned Republicans about in this Op-Ed column, but I don't want to put the kibosh on Bill Cook leaving, so I'll leave the bragging for later. As far as Jon is concerned, if there's going to be a Republican taking over this new District, then I'm glad it's going to be him.

This has the smell of something that was entirely staged and worked out in advance. They cleared it with him, I'm sure.
