"Iowa's politics-free redistricting faces test"

The AP has more here.

"Iowa residents figure they're immune from the bare-knuckles, once-a-decade redistricting fights of other states, where incumbents use the process to solidify their re-election chances while parties scramble for any advantage.
But in this rural Midwestern state, politically relevant on the national level mostly for hosting the first caucuses of each presidential election, redistricting is less about politics and more about nonpartisan fairness.
That could be about to change."
