New congressional district lines mash up hip-hop and Hee-Haw

U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II may have to learn to appreciate mud runs if he wants to stay in Congress. Missouri state lawmakers drew up a map that extends the former mayor of Kansas City’s district into Ray and Saline counties.

An upcoming event in Richmond gives Cleaver the opportunity to get a feel for his new domain. On Saturday, May 7, at the Ray County Fair Grounds, truck owners will gather to test their skills at traversing a mud bog that’s 200 feet long.
