|District 34 maintains solid minority status|
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the final story in a series of articles showcasing the changes in state legislative district lines as this fall's elections near. The Legislature tackled redistricting legislative districts in a special legislative session earlier this year. Congressional and legislative district lines were redrawn to reflect population changes revealed in the 2010 Census.
Population losses throughout Senate District 34 over the past 10 years forced the Legislature to redraw the district in the special legislative session on redistricting earlier this year, adding more people to the district along the way.
Primarily minority residents in Morehouse and Richland parishes were added to the district to make up for losses in population elsewhere in District 34, which stretches from Ouachita Parish to the Mississippi River and points south through the Delta to Concordia Parish.
District 34 currently is represented by Sen. Francis Thompson, D-Delhi. A veteran member of the Legislature, Thompson is seeking a second term in the Senate in the fall elections.
Thompson is chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee.
