Shoreline and all Lake Forest Park will become part of the 7th Congressional District, according to a map released by the State redistricting commission Wednesday.

The District, which Congressman Jim McDermott has represented since 1988, has for the last decade, included Seattle, suburbs south of Seattle and part  of Lake Forest Park. Now it will include most, but not all, of Seattle and extend north to include Shoreline, all of Lake Forest Park, Edmonds and Woodway.

Shoreline, Edmonds, Woodway and part of Lake Forest Park have long been part of the 1st Congressional District, which will now stretch from Kenmore, Kirkland and Redmond north through the inland areas of Snohomish and Skagit counties.

The new map is likely to eliminate Democratic State Rep. Marko Liias of Edmonds as a potential Congressional candidate since Liias is unlikely to run against a sitting Democratic congressman.
