Bloomberg Politics has an excellent interactive on redistricting battles (ht/ to reader bks). While we’re on the topic, make sure to read the New York Times this weekend. I have a piece on gerrymandering standards in the Sunday Review section.

Other entertainment: here’s a cool general-election demographic simulator by Aaron Bycoffe and David Wasserman.
