Democratic Members of the Michigan Congressional Delegation Release the Following Statement on GOP Congressional Redistricting Map


LANSING - A statement from the Democratic Members of the Michigan Congressional Delegation on the Michigan Congressional redistricting map as passed yesterday by the state Senate:


"The Republican controlled state legislature has rushed through the redistricting process to produce a Congressional map which is gerrymandered to put the partisan political advantage of their GOP incumbents over the fair representation of Michigan’s citizens and communities.  The Governor should veto this map, and send it back to the state legislature to ensure fair representation in keeping with Michigan's history of competitive districts that respect communities of interest.  Michigan Democrats are exploring legal avenues to prevent a 10-year map that disenfranchises voters."
