Pennsylvania Supreme Court chooses new congressional map
Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court has chosen a new House district map proposed by Democratic voters.
Petition gathering dates have changed for candidates but the primary dates remain the same after the court’s decision, according to the local outlet.
“The ‘Carter Plan’ is a fair map that will result in a congressional delegation mirroring the people of Pennsylvania — without favoring one party,” he added.
When Wolf rejected the GOP-drawn map at the end of January, he said it “failed the test of fundamental fairness.”
Republicans blasted Wolf’s decision, saying it was made for partisan reasons and showed his unwillingness to work with Republicans.
Wolf is not able to run for reelection in November due to term limits, leaving a highly contested gubernatorial race in the state.
