New Maps Now in the Hands of the Courts


Tim Moore

The new maps for the NC House got bipartisan support. The new maps for US congressional seats and NC Senate didn't.

The Republican map-drawers in Raleigh took Watauga out of what was to be the new 14th CD, thus making it more attractive for Madison Cawthorn to stay home and run again in what is still (for the moment) the 11th CD. That edit also made it possible for House Speaker Tim Moore to reconsider whether he might run in the new district that covers his home county of Cleveland. Bottomline: He's back in, you bet, if Cawthorn stays home.

Oh the times! Oh the customs!
