North Carolina lawmakers advance new maps that would give GOP three pickup seats in House

Law­mak­ers in the North Car­oli­na Sen­ate advanced a pro­posed con­gres­sion­al map that would redraw bound­aries in a way that would posi­tion Repub­li­cans to pick up at least three House seats in 2024.
The state Sen­ate Redis­trict­ing and Elec­tions Com­mit­tee vot­ed to approve a map alter­ing all 14 of the state’s dis­tricts, cre­at­ing 10 dis­tricts that favor Repub­li­cans, three that favor a Demo­c­rat, and one that would be con­sid­ered a toss-up. If adopt­ed, the map would give Repub­li­cans a major advan­tage in the state, cur­rent­ly split 50–50 by Democ­rats and Repub­li­cans.
