The eastern shore of Maryland + Sussex county Delaware would be a great combo. I didn't realize that West Virginia went so red. West Virginia use to be a liberal, Democrat, union strong hold. Maybe the POTUS and his EPA thugs throwing the union coal miners under the bus after he got their votes the first time changed things a little. Might be a good fit to join western Maryland with West Virginia. Would need to keep a eye on Jefferson county W.Va though. It is a bedroom community for federal workers so they are leaning evermore to the left. We really do need to change the state moto though, "The Free State" sure does not apply anymore.
