Homosexuals want VRA districts.

"Communities of interest such as Latinos and African-Americans are protected to ensure proper representation," said Mario Guerrero, government affairs director for Equality California, a gay advocacy group. "We want the same opportunity to elect representatives from our community."



I bet those same gay anti semites would be the strongest opposition to a Jewish congressional district in the only area it's possible to do so Southern Brooklyn.  (could be a 60%+ McCain seat)

Why are you assuming they're anti-Semitic?

Incidentally, I think you got the old lines for RI and they moved the northwest corner township to CD2.

(ducks, runs, hides)

Yellow voted for John McCain by 114 votes. Blue is 30% Hispanic and 28% Black (36% Anglo).
Neither is quite at maxpack - had to introduce some slight compromises to keep the western remnant district contiguous.

Haven't saved it, but I recall that green, red and purple are eerily alike, not by design, in electoral figures though green is less white than the others (on account of Waterbury). Slightly more Democratic than the state, all of them.

Alaska redistricting upheld. Tack another one onto the 'loser whines, sues, and loses case' pile.

The appropriate remedy should be treble damages.

It was party sues, wins, Redistricting Board draws a new plan, party sues again and this time loses in Alaska.  So they're not total losers.

And this isn't on topic - U.S. House redistricting.  It's state house and senate redistricting.  Alaska only sends 1 U.S. House member to Washington.

If I were a Republican consultant, and I was looking at states like Virginia, Florida, and Georgia which are trending toward the Democrats, I would strongly urge the GOP in those states to follow North Carolina's example and remove the governor from the redistricting process when they have full control over both the legislature and the governor's mansion. 

And this advice is especially acute for the Virginia GOP -the 2017 election cycle may be the last time they can win all statewide offices from the governor to the attorney general before shifting demographics make it too difficult for them to win statewide at any level.  A possible scenario could be a deal allowing the governor to run for two consecutive terms in exchange for relinquishing veto power over any redistricting plan issued by the General Assembly.
