(NECN) - Jack E. Robinson, a Republican U.S. Senate candidate in 2009 has stepped in front and center into the effort to create a "majority minority Congressional District" in the Boston area.

Robinson says there's no reason three different Congressmen should be representing bits and pieces of Boston, and the city and Suffolk County should be its own contiguous district.

Robinson, who lost to Scott Brown in the Republican primary, did not rule out that he would be a candidate if the district was formed.
