“Flip a District”


This year we’re going to be entering into the exciting world of outright meddling with the political process, as we attempt to “Flip a District.”

It’s simple: There are a lot of terrible, entrenched congressmen out there. Many don’t even have an opponent. We’re going to choose one of them, throw him into the national spotlight, and see if we can’t send him scuttling under the refrigerator on Election Night.

Phase 1 will begin immediately: Bill will ask our viewers to tell us why their representative needs to be sent packing. Once we’ve chosen the district, we will spend the year periodically looking at the district, meeting the entrenched incumbent, introducing his fresh-faced challenger, getting to know the people they want to serve, and generally doing our level best to flip that district.

 So if you live in a district where your congressman has gotten a little too comfy, we want to hear about it! Take to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and tell us why they deserve the boot. Include #flipadistrict in your plea and follow the action all season long here at HBO.com.
