North Dakota state Rep. David Monson, R-Osnabrock, gestures while discussing the problems of drawing new legislative districts in rural northeastern North Dakota during a meeting on Thursday, July 21, 2011, in the North Dakota Capitol's Roughrider Room of a committee that is in charge of recommending a new legislative redistricting plan to the North Dakota Legislature. Monson's home area in northeastern North Dakota lost population during the last decade, which will make the job of drawing new districts particularly difficult. (AP Photo/Dale Wetzel) less
