On a side note, I just noticed that my CD4 is almost identical to the CD4 that Sam Rayburn represented.

Well that is Texas style (which is another of saying, "you should be arrested"). Tongue

Here is a 12 seat Washington. I tried basing it off of the 2012 map, including parts I don't really like about it. I kept the majority-minority district (WA-09 is 51.4% non-white). I kept the way they crossed the Cascades, with Klickitat latched onto the third and the 8th stretching from East King/Pierce to Eastern Washington.



Electoral breakdown:
WA-01: 60.0% Obama, 53.3% Murray
WA-02: 55.4% Obama, 50.4% Murray
WA-03: 52.4% Obama, 54.1% Rossi
WA-04: 58.4% McCain, 63.6% Rossi
WA-05: 49.8% McCain, 56.9% Rossi
WA-06: 58.0% Obama, 53.4% Murray
WA-07: 83.4% Obama, 80.4% Murray
WA-08: 54.0% McCain, 62.4% Rossi
WA-09: 66.9% Obama, 62.4% Murray
WA-10: 55.6% Obama, 51.5% Murray
WA-11: 54.4% Obama, 51.1% Rossi
WA-12: 63.0% Obama, 55.1% Murray

D - 1, 6, 7, 9, 10, 12
R - 3, 4, 5, 8
S - 2, 11

I kept the partisan breakdown about the same... WA currently breaks down to 5-4, which would translate to about 7-5 with twelve seats. The Democrats would have six safe seats, the Republicans four, with the 2nd and 11th districts as swing. I might try to alter Snohomish County later to make the 2nd a little more Rossi.

I did get rid of the current silly split of NW Washington. With smaller sizes, we can achieve the same goals without it.

The 3rd did technically vote for Obama, but I think the Republicans would definitely be favored there.
