Redistricting Maps Redraw California's Political Landscape

Hosted by

For the first time, district lines for the legislature and Congress have been drawn up by a citizens' commission sworn not to take politics into consideration. The process has gone from the backroom to the public hearing, but that doesn't mean it won't have political impacts. Which powerful incumbents might be out of a job? Which will have to compete with colleagues from the same party? Did the commission pay too much attention to race? Also, the likely impact of the debt-ceiling deal on California. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, will the deal pass the Senate and Congress?
