I'm in the process of making a Texas 2006 scenario. However, my attempts at the map have been, frankly, worse than useless. I'd be most appreciative if someone could turn the attached map of Texas by congressional districts into one with the correct background that I can then use for the scenario.

Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

I was going to start a Texas one, but I want to see how this works. Also, I would suggest not putting "OMGZ TEXAS HAS NO VP" for the VP choice. Instead, that should be for the Lieutenant Governor. Even though they are not on the same ticket, and it is possible to have a Gov from one side and a Lt. Gov on the other, it would make it more realistic.

For another Democrat, I would suggest Charles Stenholm. He is one of the few conservative Democrats left, and he reaches out to all sides.

For other Republicans, I would suggest Tom Craddick, just because he seems to be looking for that seat in the future.

I hope you realize that the map you have of the Congressional Districts is now incorrect. That was the map from the 2000 redistricting, but the 2003 mid-decade redistricting that cost Stenholm, Lampson, Bell, and several others their seats redid the map you have. I typed in "texas congressional district map" in Google Image Search and found this map that does the current CD's and done in the same fashion as your own map (probably made by the same person).

Texas Congressional District Map (2003)

I didn't put it as a .jpg so as to save room and I didn't know if you'd rather use the older, non-gerrymandered districting. I believe that map (the one I linked to) was changed again for the 2006 races; a federal court ruled that CD15 had been racially gerrymandered to diminish the power of Austin's Latino population or something like that.
