Edited by Geoff Pallay

Other states featured in this week's Roundup

With time running out to meet the December 31 deadline, the Washington Redistricting Commission released a draft plan of new congressional districts on Wednesday. Under the plan the newly created 10th District would be centered in Olympia, a strongly Democratic area. Democrats are also considered to have safe seats in the 6th, 7th and 9th Districts, while Republicans also have four safe seats - the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 8th. The 1st and 2nd are considered up for grabs. The commission has until Sunday to make changes to the plan, but at most only minor changes are expected.

Plans for new legislative district maps have proved more difficult and have not yet been released.
