    But looking at the WI section even though there was a 90s map that put PARTS of Green County in WI-1, there's just not the population to leave out southern MKE County entirely, so I suspect they would have skipped Green County entirely and put in Franklin (SW corner of MKE County instead. Green County is much less industrial and really fits better into the 3rd district CoI.

    Also, I don't think they drew Stevens Point out of the 8th out of any particular fear of Lassa so much as just because it's a large source of Democratic votes.

    Other than those minor gripes, looks good.
