    Putting Ithaca in Slaughter's district, that is. Be really curious to see what you come up with.

    •  Ithaca? (4+ / 0-)

      It's a little ways away. But I guess if her district can be stretched from east of Rochester to the Canadian border and downtown Buffalo it may as well be stretched to Ithaca. I've drawn it stretching from Rochester to Syracuse but didn't try Ithaca.

      Frankly, there is no need. Buffalo makes a D district. Rochester makes a D district. Syracuse makes a D district. Ithaca and Binghamton can make an R district into a swing district all without getting into crazy gerrymandering.
