The House Democrats’ proposed redistricting map, unveiled Tuesday, would put five sets of incumbent Republicans in districts against each other in addition to Republican Rep. Jill York against House Democratic Leader Rocky Adkins.

Here are the districts featuring Republican incumbents against each other:
2nd District: Splits Graves County and captures southern McCracken County to place Republican Rep. Steven Rudy of West Paducah against freshman Rep. Richard Heath of Mayfield. That new 2nd District would also get Livingston County.
5th District: Places Republican Rep. Ben Waide’s hometown of Madisonville in Hopkins County in with Caldwell County and Crittenden County, which is the home of freshman Rep. Lynn Bechler.
17th District: Puts Edmonson County with Republican Rep. Michael Meredith in the same district with Butler County, where Rep. C.B. Embry lives and southern Warren County, home of Rep. Jim DeCesare of Rockfield. This is the same move as last year’s map.
89th District: Combines much of Republican Rep. Marie Rader’s district, including her home in Jackson County, with Lee County — home of freshman Rep. Toby Herald of Beattyville.
91st District: Places Boyle County, where Rep. Mike Harmon of Danvillle lives, in with Garrard County, home of freshman Rep. Jonathan Shell of Lancaster.
