Democratic Congressman George "Buddy" Darden of Georgia's seventh congressional district may choose to move to Bartow County following the upcoming 1990 census redistricting. Cobb County, where the venerable lower magistrate lives, is likely to become a Republican district of its own because of increased population. Or the rumors may be true, that Darden is considering changing parties. He has generally voted in favor of gun owners and the Contras, but he may have to "moderate" his positions on those issues to be part of the Republican Party of Georgia.
