Between the Lines: All That Work in Missouri, No Map to Show-Me for It

Colorado Democrats have proposed a new Congressional map that makes some of the House districts in the state more competitive, while Republicans in the state have suggested keeping the number of competitive seats consistent with the past decade.

Republicans have a one-seat advantage in the Congressional delegation, which has four GOP Members and three Democratic Members. However, Gov. John Hickenlooper is a Democrat and could play a key role signing off on a map if local lawmakers can find a compromise.

But after weeks of negotiations, it’s unlikely that state legislative leaders can agree. The redistricting committee has until the legislative session ends on May 11 to finish a map; otherwise, federal courts will be forced to take over the process.
