What Tricia Cotham's House District Will Look Like

Below, the new proposed Republican map for redistricting NCHouse seats in Mecklenburg County. Tricia Cotham's House district is currently 112, but Carolina Forward tweeted the map below yesterday, with this comment:

Check out Mecklenburg's new House District 105. Custom-drawn for @triciacotham, it still leans Democratic (as does all of Meck), but - wow. #ncpol


Now that's some gerrymandering! Will it save Cotham's seat? Or will she run for Dan Bishop's 9th CD House seat? If she wants to do that, they better pass the maps in S 756, where the map for the 9th Dist. includes Cotham's Mecklenburg abode, and not the alternate maps in S 757, which will throw CD9 northward and well away from Meck.

Incidentally, NCHouse Dist. 105 is currently held by Democrat Wesley Harris who is giving up the seat to run for Treasurer in 2024.
