This is really not too complex a state.
1. Dislodge one of the 2 remaining Democrats in the south half of the state.
2. Create a new GOP seat. I created this with Bill Cowsert in mind, who happens to be the Vice Chair of the redistricting team.
CD-1 – Unchanged. Jack Kingston is fine here.
CD-12 – The new Quad Cities (Albany, Macon, Augusta, Savannah) district. It’s about 56% black. John Barrow, Sanford Bishop, and Jim Marshall all live here. They can duke it out in a primary.
CD-8 – Made about 5 points more Republican by the removal of Macon. Austin Scott is fine here.
CD-2 – Made about 15 points more Republican. Mike Keown lives here and can run again.
As you can see, I split North Georgia up to strengthen the other districts.
CD-13 – Some new territory for Lynn Westmoreland, but its all heavy Republican areas, except for Columbus.
CD-9 – Ditto. Safe for Tom Graves
CD-11 – I took heavily Republican Cherokee County and used it to reinforce 55/45 Cobb County. Safe for Phil Gingrey
CD-6 – Drops Cherokee County in exchange for most of Forscythe County
CD-7 – In its current form, a district that might slip away. Not anymore.
CD-10 – Essentially unchanged.
CD-4 – Essentially unchanged.
CD-5 – Essentially unchanged.
CD-13 – I wrapped this around more to pick up more Democrats.
The end result should be a 10-4 split. Net gain of 2 Republicans and a net loss of 1 Democrat.
