Wolf Rejects GOP Congressional Maps
“As non-partisan analysts have already said, their map maintains a similar partisan advantage by employing many of the same unconstitutional tactics present in their 2011 map,” Wolf said in a statement.
Wolf continued saying the maps submitted benefit Republicans, which is against the court order.
“The analysis by my team shows that, like the 2011 map, the map submitted to my office by Republican leaders is still a gerrymander. Their map clearly seeks to benefit one political party, which is the essence of why the court found the current map to be unconstitutional.”
Wolf’s decision ahead of the February 15th deadline gives him the opportunity to submit his own maps to the Supreme Court, or allow the deadline to pass letting the Supreme Court draw the new map.
