When we last checked in on GOP state Rep. Paul Mirski, he was on the House floor attacking the New Hampshire Supreme Court Justices as “corrupt and unethical.” (At least he managed not to drop his pistol this time.)
That may have been Mirski’s last hurrah. Now that the redistricting plan he championed has been upheld by the Supreme Court he reviles, the Enfield Republican who said “liberal” politicians are all fascists or Marxists will be running for re-election in a decidedly Democratic (PVI: D+11) district.
John Gregg has the details:
State Rep. Paul Mirski, R-Enfield, pushed for the constitutional amendment that has led to more single-town districts in the New Hampshire House, and it could cost him politically.
Mirksi, a six-term conservative lawmaker who chaired the House Redistricting Committee at the behest of House Speaker William O’Brien, is now facing a challenge from an Enfield Democrat who is a newcomer to politics.
Both Mirski and Democrat Wendy Piper, 52, a lecturer at Dartmouth’s Institute for Writing and Rhetoric, have filed to run for the Grafton District 10 seat that represents only Enfield. Previously, Mirski has been one of three representatives from a larger district that also included the more conservative towns of Grafton, Canaan, Dorchester and Orange.
