Pennsylvania Congressional Districts Ruled Unconstitutional
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled yesterday the state’s congressional map was gerrymandered to favor one party over the other.
Currently, five of the state’s 18 seats are held by Democrats, 12 by Republicans, and there is one vacancy where there is a special election on March 13.
The court ordered a new map be submitted by February 15, but the state Legislature plans to challenge the decision in federal court.
