NCDP Statement on General Assembly Vote to Pass New Legislative Maps

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after the North Carolina General Assembly voted in favor of new legislative maps:

“Our state was given a golden opportunity to put voters before politics and Republican leaders did the opposite. Republicans refused to fix their racial gerrymander. They gave the same dark arts gerrymandering expert that got us into this mess taxpayer money to rig the system again. And they refused to listen to the very people they’re elected to office to represent. These new maps fly in the face of what was ordered, and now the courts must step in and fix what the GOP refused to do.”
