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

LANSING - A statement from the Democratic Members of the Michigan Congressional Delegation on the Michigan Congressional redistricting map as published by the Detroit News on May 28, 2011:

"Never in Michigan's history has a redistricting map been gerrymandered to be so overtly partisan and disrespectful of community interest to build a partisan political advantage. By not representing the demographics of the state, this map disenfranchises voters.

"The people of Michigan deserve a Congressional map produced by the state legislature and signed by the Governor that will ensure fair representation in keeping with Michigan's history of competitive districts that respect communities of interest. The people of Michigan deserve to choose their Representatives in Congress - this map clearly was drawn to let the Republican Representatives choose their voters."
