It's Up to the Courts Now
The Republicans in the NC Senate concurred yesterday with the Republicans in the NC House who remapped the 13 congressional districts because of a court order. It's the same map that had already been reproduced down-column.
Assuming that the court finds the map okay, there'll be considerable fluffing of feathers among incumbent reps, some of whom (like Virginia Foxx and Patrick McHenry) have new constituents to introduce themselves to. Also considerable soul-searching among Democratic candidates who had already announced or those who will now announce because they see an opening.
Much to unpack in coming days, as the demographic and partisan makeup of the new districts becomes clearer.
