An Arkansas districting plan Democrats like

Dan Wasserman, House editor for the Cook Political Report, says Democrats in Washington are circulating a congressional redistricting plan shown above. It would, of course dramatically alter the political landscape in the 2nd District, linking Pulaski County with other counties with Democratic inclinations.

Since Republicans stacked the legislative committees that will consider redistricting, Republicans think such a plan is DOA because it would harm Rep. Tim Griffin. But something will have to pass and Democrats nominally hold a majority in the legislature. Presuming they all vote like Democrats.

UPDATE: Wasserman has also posted a map drawn more with incumbent protection in mind.
