A couple of maps to contemplate

Over at the Swing State Project, frequent commenter blank has taken a crack at drawing a new Congressional map for Texas that looks mighty plausible. He’s also contributed a couple of scenarios for redrawing State House districts in Dallas County, which drops from 16 seats to 14 for this decade, that he sent to Greg for review. We’re about to enter the part of the session where the House Redistricting Committee will be taking center stage, so get ready for all kinds of maps to be coming at you fast and furous. Check ’em out.

    Thanks for the mention Kuff, but here’s hoping that congressional map is implausible. Or specifically illegal, as I made it to be what I suspect the GOP might try to pass. Afterwards, I found this map at RRH, which is very similar to my map, but is actually slightly more friendly to Democrats. That’s ironic since those folks are from the GOP side of the aisle.

    As for the Dallas maps, I think they essentially drive a well-deserved nail in the only-5-VRA-districts coffin.
