NCDP Statement on Special Master’s Proposed Maps

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement after the special master in the Covington redistricting case released his final proposal:

“The independent, non-partisan special master had one task – to fix Republicans’ unconstitutional racial gerrymander after Speaker Moore and Leader Berger refused. NCDP applauds the special master for doing just that, and for giving voters in the affected districts a chance to pick their representatives again instead of the other way around. Republicans made this bed and now they must lie in it, and their efforts to delegitimize the special master and our judicial system are dangerous and destructive.”
