NC 2nd-chance redistricting finalized; maps now go to court

North Carolina General Assembly

The North Carolina legislature has finished new redistricting plans that Republicans contend will meet fairness directives of state justices who struck down previously approved maps as illegal gerrymanders. Legislators completed votes Thursday on new district boundaries for the U.S. House delegation and the state House and Senate. The state Supreme Court told the General Assembly to draw new boundaries by Friday. A trial judge panel will now decide whether they can be used for the May primary. Election data shows four of the 14 new U.S. House districts will be very politically competitive.
