    Current Supreme Court jurisprudence requires Congressional districts to have exactly equal populations within a state. Most of the bizarre little cut-outs are to fix population numbers.

    The 2nd/3rd border isn't that, though. That's because the 2nd is the most Republican in the state, so they're diluting it a bit with some of the not-quite-so-Republican inner suburbs of Grand Rapids.

    30, male, MI-11 (previously VA-08). Evangelical, postconservative, green.
