Maryland and Virginia are really the only states on this list that are different simply because of borders.

-N.Mex. and Okla. are only slightly bordered
-Ill./Ind. is explained mostly (but not only) by Chicago
-Eastern Wash. is quite similar to Northern Idaho
-Inland Calif. is relatively conservative (and Ariz. is pretty moderate anyway)
-The other three pairings (Mass./N.H., N.Dak./Minn, Iowa/Neb.) have very different population densities (and western Iowa is also very conservative)

But MD and VA have comparable densities and race distributions, but are very different culturally and politically.
