|I just posted the latest status of the 2012 redistricting process. The big story comes out of Florida where Governor Rick Scott
has signed into law a Republican-drawn map that solidifies the party's large House delegation
advantage. Florida Democrats plan to challenge the map in court, so we'll have to
see if it holds up.
We're also still eagerly awaiting the resolution of Texas' long-running redistricting battles in court. For detailed and frequent updates, I recommend
The overall picture is becoming more complete as the heart of the election season approaches. Forty-one states, representing 318 congressional districts, have either settled on
a final map or claim only one statewide district. Four more states, Connecticut and Minnesota along with Florida and Texas, are slogging through court challenges. That leaves
just 5 states that have yet to pass a new district map.
