Redistricting Georgia The Unfiltered Way (with maps)

Last Friday, angry Georgia Democrats said they were being excluded from the redistricting process. For Democrats though, being out of power means they have to take a backseat for awhile. And that means the Republican majority gets to draw the maps without much regard to the Democrats' protestations.

Below are congressional district maps I put together that could conceivably result in the state's delegation to Congress being made up of 10 Republicans and 4 Democrats. These maps protect all 8 Republicas currently in Congress, while also giving the GOP an opportunity to knock off John Barrow and pick up Georgia's new 14th congressional district.
