    They could easily have put 100% of Yavapai County in the 4th and make up for the population taken from the 1st by giving it more of Pinal County.  That would somewhat counterbalance the loss of Prescott.

    Also, in a meeting of the Yavapai GOP where Gosar was introducing himself as the candidate for the 4th, Gosar's aide said that his boss wouldn't have won in 2010 if it wasn't for Yavapai.

      It turns AZ-01 into a 47.5% Obama district, a mere 0.4% decrease.

        the First already violates the community of interest standard to some degree. Putting more of Pinal County in the First at the expense of Yavapai could be a bit of an over-reach. The exurbs and agricultural communities of Pinal County have little to nothing in common with Yavapai or Coconino County.

            When I played around with AZ in Dave's app I found that it was impossible to keep parts of Pinal out of the First if northern Arizona was split or if it didn't stretch further south into Cochise. The community of interest standard was very hard to nail down this time around.
