New Lines to Be Drawn by Connecticut Supreme Court
The Connecticut redistricting commission failed to agree on a new House map by today’s noon deadline, so the state Supreme Court must now draw new Congressional boundaries.
The commission did not meet a previous deadline on Nov. 30, and the court had granted the group an extension. But the bipartisan group could not break its impasse, the Associated Press reported.
Connecticut’s all-Democratic delegation does not lose or gain seats in reapportionment.
Republicans’ best hopes for sending a member of the GOP to Congress lie with the open-seat race in the 5th district. Rep. Christopher Murphy (D) is vacating the seat to run for the open Senate seat.
