Redistricting Lawsuit Hearing Today

Posted by wlpo on November 17, 2011

CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois Republicans will get their day in court over the state’s new Democrat-drawn congressional remap.

A Thursday hearing is scheduled on the long-shot legal challenge filed by GOP members of Congress over the map that tries to erasesome of their recent gains. Illinois Democrats dominated the map-making because they control the General Assembly and the governor’s office.

The new map drew Republicans out of their districts and lumped incumbent GOP members together or threw them into Democrat-friendly territory.
