S«tzler Senate gives OK to plan to redistrict By ROB NOVIT Senior writer The S.C. Senate has approved a redistricting plan that will significantly increase the Aiken County presence of longtime ^Sen.Nikki Setzler, D-Lexington, both geographically and physically. For the past decade, Setzler has represented only a small sliver of the county, including Monetta, Wagener, Salley and Peny. Under the new plan, which still needs U.S. Justice Department approval, Setzler will represent the entire northern area of Aiken County. Part of his District 26 will come into the City of Aiken. Sen. Greg Ryberg, R-Aiken, will continue to have the most populous portion of the county, representing nearly 100,000 of the county's 160,000 residents. Setzler and S.C. Sen. Shane Massey, R-Edgefield, will foughly divide the remaining residents, with Massey losing significant parts of his Aiken ,County presence. !
