Sen. Susan Collins of Maine believes Washington, D.C. can get its representation by becoming part of the the state of Maryland. What about how West Virginia broke away from Virginia during the Civil War era? OR North and South Dakota, in order for those rural states to get more Republican representation? Or Wyoming, which has less people than D.C.? Why is that a state of its own. Why should D.C. not get statehood when it's been denied any kind of representation over the last few hundred years as the nation's capital and federal buildings are located there, protected by federal troops? It was mostly about race -- the free slaves resided there. It's about time to even some things out. #DCStatehood
