New Proposal for NC House Districts


Another proposed map from the NC House redistricting committee, this one for the 120 NC House seats. Watauga is still chopped up between Dist. 93 and Dist 87 (Rep. Destin Hall's district).

Quick DRA analysis of the #ncga state House map being discussed at 11 (w/ link below):

55 likely/solid R
9 lean R/toss-up
15 lean D/toss-up
41 likely/solid D

It takes 72 votes in the NC House to override a governor's veto.

Hildebrand also tweeted this:

The overall balance of seats is clearly fairer in this map, but it's also important to consider whether the map responds to swings in the electorate. Even if this map produced, say, 55 Dem seats in an average year, it's unlikely to produce a Dem majority even in a wave election.
