    think about how we will do this year vs how we would have done this year under the old maps.

    In Ohio I think it ends up 12R-4D whereas the old map would have been 7 to 10 Dems and 11-8 Republicans.

    Pennsylvania goes from 12R-6D to possibly 12D-7R, a huge difference.

    Florida isn't that different since Democrats are so packed to begin with.

    North Carolina would have been 8D-5R instead of the likely 9R-4D.

    If you ask me, redistricting played a pretty big role for Republicans.

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