    D+4 isn't all that swingy.  And Obama won the new CD-8 in 2012.  And if the growth is indeed in the Dem areas, it will slide away from him all over again.  As will WA-01, since its King County portion is quite large.  Also, court maps will not produce a radically better map.  the only change between what they came up with here and what a court would do is make a somewhat bluer CD-8.  Other than that, not much change.

      WA-1 was D+1 or 2. And the difference between the WA-8 the commission drew and what a court would have drawn is the difference between R+ 1 or 2 and D+6ish, and with Dave Reichert as the incumbent, that's the difference between likely R and likely D.
