    You pretty much hit the nail on the head.  There's a lot of upper-middle to upper-class whites (like me) who live here.  There's also a lot of minorities and working class whites in Aurora, and they are generally Democrats.  The one problem is that, although they removed most of Douglas County, they still left the fast-growing and heavily Republican Highlands Ranch in the district, although Douglas County itself is probably tied with El Paso County for most rapidly blueing county in the state.  The problem is that we're talking about a trend from R+20 to R+10 PVI.  The fact that Obama topped 40% in both of these counties was unbelievable.
