Texas doesn't have any congressional districts.


It doesn't? I thought a court ordered interim use of these districts.
The Supreme Court has stayed the order by the San Antonio district court.  After that happened, the district court extended the filing deadline, and said that candidates could specify which map they were filing under.

Is it known when the Supreme Court will make its decision?

Yeah, the Supreme Court really screwed things up here.  Oral arguments will start Monday.

Will Texas end up with one or the other of the court or legislative maps?

I think they ended up keeping the WV districts.

Sorry Nathan; we'll need a new TX map... Sad

I also added Presidential results for GA, SC, OK and NV.

The link that Miles gave me says that the Arizona plan is indeed final.  I don't know about NM, but I think they're close to passing a map (if they haven't already).

BTW Virginia's plan is officially law.

We should get Shilly in here, since he practically did all the states by himself.

Kentucky:



For the remaining states:

NM: Basically the same.
KS: I think they'll have a map out here soon.
MN: No idea.
FL: This map passed both chambers.
VA: I think we have a final map here.
I'm not sure about NY, NH, RI and CT.

Looks like we can re-do TX now. This looks like compromise map.

Ri passed a map. Last I checked, it was on the governor's desk, but that was some days ago. Ct has a court drawn map. TX really is more of a compromise offer. If Republicans went back and actually passed that map in the legislature and withdrew their old one, then it would probably stand up in court, but as an actual compromise it appears to not fly.

That leaves NH, NY, MN, KS and TX on the table, with TX the only one of those to even have a likely map. (KS has two, very different ones. Despite Republican control.)

Actually, seems like the Wyandotte-to-first-district, idea, is dead. Though second district Republicans are still balking at what losing Manhattan to the 1st and some R suburbs to the 3rd and gaining Lawrence is doing to their district, and are coming up with all sorts of alternatives, like a Wichita-to-southeast-corner fourth.

This is the main proposed map: http://redistricting.ks.gov/_Plans/Proposed_Plans/m5_sunflower9c/m5_sunflower9c.html

And further research reveals that Chafee has signed it. And also that CT's map, drawn by a special master some weeks ago, was officially adopted by the State Supreme Court today.

Ok. I heard that a coalition of moderate Republicans and Democrats were fighting the conservative Republicans over redistricting the KS legislature.

I hope this doesn't take too long.

The last status hearing, the SA court took a recess to call the DC court to find out when they might issue their ruling.  People were able to use their cell phones for pictures during that break, and there were about 100 lawyers in the room.

About 1/2 hour after the SA court had come back, they took another recess to go talk to the DC court who had called back.  The next status hearing was moved from the 15th to the 14th so they could go to a 2nd day if necessary.

Great job!  Smiley   



BTW,  does that map keep the proposed new minority-majority district in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area?  It kind of looks like it, but I can't quite tell.

Thanks Smiley

Yes, the district (CD-33) running through Dallas and Tarrant counties is 61% Hispanic. It reminds me of Martin Frost's old district.

Re: Minnesota, I found an article which says that the courts will impose Minnesota maps on February 21.

Great.

The only major states left then would be NY and FL.

VA passed a map. I think the lines are bit hard to make out.

Someone could do VA.

Is TX-18 contiguous? Also same question for TX-2.

What a disgusting map... Honestly I am amazed that people complain about California's new system when you compare it to what is happening in NC, TX, MD and IL
