    The only way that you can do anything like this is if you go beyond what is seen anywhere else in the country in extremism gerrymandering.  And pretty sure the one time I did such a map, it involved splitting Minneapolis three times.  Any sane DFL gerrymander would give Bachmann a vote sink as we go after Paulsen and Kline.  The portion of Bachmann's district that gives her the win is simply too far from Keith Ellison's district.  Give her the vote sink and create 7/1, done.  She can be the GOP spokesperson for the state!  Especially if they still have no one elected statewide and are still in the minority in the legislature by the time 2021 rolls around.
