Fellow David Wasserman “Meet the Mappers” (Guests: Adam Kincaid & Tom Bonier)
Dividing states into districts has been a source of controversy dating back to Elbridge Gerry's original gerrymander, but what actually goes into drawing a map in the 21st Century? Two of the top mapmakers for each party will shed light on the data that drives the redistricting process. What lessons have both parties' data operations learned in the past decade and what can we expect from the 2021 round of redistricting?
Special Guests: Adam Kincaid, Executive Director of the National Republican Redistricting Trust; Tom Bonier, CEO of TargetSmart
