Democrats offer redistricting proposals

Posted by on Mon, Jul 25, 2011 at 4:27 PM

As criticism on the Republican drawn Congressional, N.C. House and N.C. Senate maps flowed forward, Senate Redistricting Committee Chairman Bob Rucho pointed out that he would entertain alternatives, but the Democrats had failed to submit them.

Well, until now.

As the General Assembly engages in a floor debate on the Republican proposal, the Democrats are offering maps of their own.

The Democrats are offering this map as an alternative to the Republican Congressional plan.

Dubbing them “Fair and Legal,” the terms the N.C. GOP has used constantly when asked about a redistricting strategy, the Democratic Caucus and Legislative Black Caucus rolled out the following plans today.

Among other key changes, they include Asheville in the 11th District, and Brad Milller and David Price would not be double-bunked in the 4th District.

You can find the maps here:

Democratic Caucus — "Senate Fair and Legal"
Democratic Caucus — "Possible Senate Districts"
Legislative Black Caucus — "Congressional Fair and Legal"
