NCDP Statement on Redistricting Court Decision

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after three federal judges ruled that the General Assembly must draw new redistricting lines by September 1, 2017:

“We are encouraged by today’s court ruling and hope that this decision allows North Carolina citizens to finally get the fair representation from their state government they deserve. As the ruling outlined, this unconstitutionally elected Republican caucus has dragged their feet for far too long on drawing democratic maps. It’s high time the people of North Carolina pick their representatives, not the other way around.”
