CHANGE IN THE NUMBER OF SENATORS
As a conservative I feel the increase in the number of states will give a political advantage to the Democrats which I am against. Given the way the counties voted in the 2016 election I can see the Republican party possibly gaining 4 Senators but the Democrats would probably end up with 8 which is 6 more than they have now.
I believe we should leave the state as it is. It is a Democrat stronghold and that will not change by dividing it.
