    what (minimal) changes can be made to the Holt plan to better suit the interests of LRC members? Because I have to assume that will be one of their options.

    Ok, so I read the polls.

      But I don't know that they won't start from their own map and just re-implement stupidity.

      I'd think they will either get frustrated and be bi-partisan or double-down and fight on with a slightly nuanced version of their map.

      The rate its going, we're looking at a primary on Halloween LOL.

        step in.

        The question is: what is the absolute drop-dead date for a plan to be in place?

        Ok, so I read the polls.

          I'm being mostly facetious about what i say.  I think the LRC will actually work pretty quick and backtrack from Holt like you mentioned.

          the court left open the fact that Holt wasn't the starting point or the barrier the new map had to clear, just that the LRC couldn't be so crazy with what they do, so obvious, and certainly not so easily proven to be in violation of statute.

          I quite enjoyed the read.
