  •  FL18 and TX23 are not yet on NRCC's target list, (2+ / 0-)

    since the redistricting has not fully settled in FL and TX, aka, who knows who will end up where.

    But chances are these two district will stay put, or only be slightly modified. Hard to believe NRCC won't target them then.

    •  I could see them not targeting the 23rd if (2+ / 0-)

      the Hispanic population has to be bumped up and it ends up at like 56% Obama.  They didn't target Cuellar, Castro, or Hinojosa after all so I doubt they'd waste time on someone who is clearly stronger than Obama in the district.

      The 18th however might move the other direction depending on whether the 20th gets struck down as a gerrymander (which it is, that shit isn't VRA required) though that would put the 22nd permanently out of reach for Republicans.

      If anyone has good court-drawn maps of Florida, I'd love to see them as I'm not totally satisfied with the one I drew.
