Proposed Senate Map

Only 5 North Texas districts change under the proposed settlement map from General Abbott.  Below are the districts and their voting percentages from the 2008 Presidential election:


Dist.
Incumbent
McCain
Obama
9
(Harris)
54.7
44.4
10
Davis
52.5
46.7
12
Nelson
63.9
35.3
22
Birdwell
66.2
33
30
Estes
71
27.8


Under the 2008 lines, Sen. Davis' district voted 52.1% for McCain and 47.1% for Obama, so it is slightly improved for the Republicans and remains a marginally Republican district.  The other 26 Senate districts remain unchanged.
