    First, the legislature is divided so no one party controlled the process. And since the parties couldn't agree on a redistricting plan for Congress (after drawing incumbent protection gerrymanders for themselves), the courts drew the congressional district lines, producing an unusually clean map with districts that aren't that all misshapen. You should move New York to the nonpartisan list.
