Is there a formula for figuring out state sizes for a cartogram?

Well the author for the maps I'm working on no longer wants a cartogram, per se, he now just wants the states to remain their regular shape, but get larger or smaller depending on the number of delegates for the dem and rep. parties. The delegates range from 22 to 611. How to I go about recalculating the states sizes with this info. I'm sure I can get a percentage somehow, it's just been so long since I've done it.
Sounds like you'll want to to do a noncontiguous cartogram. There nay be some info at the indiemaps blog link below.
