Three representatives in the Washington State legislature from Eastern Washington just introduced legislation to divide Washington State into two separate states. The western side of the state generally votes Democrat. The East side generally votes Republican. They want to name the East side "Liberty." They would hope Eastern Oregon would also want to join this new state as well.
None of this is likely to happen, it ups Congressional representation for the state which other states don't like.
