When Ben Carson’s campaign released a hilariously erroneous map of the United States (and in the middle of Geography Awareness Week no less!), their graphic designer was mocked for being very confused about New England. But hey–New England is confusing. There are too many little states crammed in there. What was less forgivable was that the Carson campaign erred in its depiction of Maryland, where he made his career.
As the Washington Post points out, the map gives a chunk of Virginia territory along the Delmarva peninsula to Maryland. Oops (again).
But what if this map isn’t a mistake? Perhaps it’s a leaked peek at how Carson plans to rearrange state boundaries if he becomes president. And since Carson is still at the top of the polls, maybe Maryland will be earning itself a whole bunch more coastal property in the next election.
