Democratic state Rep. Brandon Woodard of Lenexa has filed to run for reelection in a new state legislative district.

Why now? As a result of new GOP-drawn congressional and state legislative maps, which the Kansas Supreme Court upheld last week, Woodard no longer lives within the boundaries of House District 30, which he has represented the past two terms.
