The newly drawn congressional district is the most impoverished district in the country? How is this known already? Is this a misquote, and talking about just part of the district? Can someone supply documentation for whatever was meant by this? Sounds like it can't be true of the whole congressional district....

I can't really answer your main question but this article was written before the redraw. It is referring to the old 1st district. She is now in the new 2nd district. Comparison https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/02/19/upshot/pennsylvania-new-house-districts-gerrymandering.html
