NCDP Statement on Congressional Partisan Gerrymandering Decision

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after a federal court found North Carolina’s congressional maps to be unconstitutional partisan gerrymanders:

“Since 2010, North Carolina Republicans have unconstitutionally carved up our state using race and partisanship to desperately hold onto power at any cost. Today’s order is a monumental and necessary line in the sand stating that politicians cannot choose their voters by silencing other voters. North Carolina should not have to suffer through yet another election under unconstitutional maps, and we look forward to the courts giving voters back their voice that Republican legislators have silenced for years.”
