    Eliminating Loretta Sanchez's district is such a blatant Section 2 violation that there is absolutely zero chance that it will be in the actual maps. This is not even a borderline type of situation: You have a pre-existing highly compact majority-minority district that has been dismantled three ways in a classic vote-dilution maneuver.

    If this map actually goes into effect, which in my view is virtually impossible since it'd be blocked by preliminary injunction if it gets anywhere close to passage, then my guess is that Loretta Sanchez will run in the majority-Latino district drawn by the court that subsequently strikes it down.
