Arizona is our Washington...a trifecta state saddled with a crappy commission.
Well, yeah.

Washington is not decided... but it's pretty much decided that protecting all four Republicans will be the prime consideration.

(And yeah, Grijalva probably would have complained about the district I drew for him. Too little Tucson. Which would have knockon effects in the red district in Glendale probably. Still, there is no reason for a Dem gerry to concede four safe Republican districts in the state. If you're ready to draw competitive districts anyways.)

It's looking like WA Republicans will be getting a pretty great map, though...

Don't Democrats get another seat though?

We're currently 4-2-3 (D-R-Swing). We'll probably be 4-4-2 afterwards.

Arizona's map sort of looks like a hurricane.
