  •  I just drew up one and got it to 50.3% VAP (1+ / 0-)

    Mine removes the northern white half of Columbus and your parts of Thurston County, adds the black core of Worth County, adds Grady County, Brooks County, and most of Thomas County.  In total only 7 counties were split.

    One difference between what my map will be and yours is that mine will be totally non-partisan rather than a NJ or WA type of bipartisan commission.  IIRC though, the actual Republican map bumped the 2nd district up to majority VAP.

    NC-06/NC-04; -9.00, -8.41; progress through pragmatism

      with that district I find it hard to believe the solution was so simple. But I suspect that substituting your version would also work just fine.
