  •  I think the answer would be yes for Ohio-but hard (1+ / 0-)

    Starting from 10 seats, needing to get to 17.

    We currently hold only one of the 3 Columbus seats (along with the tail from Delaware County that eats up some Democrats). Two seats could be gained here. A fair drawing of the Dayton area would net another. Getting rid of the gerrymandering of Cuyahoga County would gain another. Then linking Portage County with the rest of Summit County gets another. Trading Huron County for Erie and Ottawa Counties would shift District 13 our way. We would then have to win the Canton seat held by the GOP and try to cobble together some counties in SE Ohio to get the 7th seat, or try to unpack the Democratic seat in Cincinnati. Also maybe to try to get enough Democrats together to have another seat around Toledo.
