Facts

In New York, Republicans could lose up to four seats under the new redistricting map. With midterm elections looming later this year, states are grappling over revisions to their election maps.

 Two major developments are key to the districting change:

  • New York Democrats unveiled a congressional map that would take the current delegation of 19 Democrats and 8 Republicans and potentially turn it into a 22-4 split. (With New York losing a democratic seat and Republicans losing up to 4.) It is “the largest single-state shift in the country.” According to Cook Political Report House editor David Wasserman.
  • Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court, where Democrats hold a majority, took control of drawing the state’s lines after the Democrats governor and the Republican-controlled legislature deadlocked on a map that must reduce the state’s House delegation from 18 seats to 17 seats.

Wasserman wrote, “For the first “ime, Dems have taken the lead on the Cook Political Report’s 2022 rReport’sting scorecard. After favorable developments in NY, AL, PA et al., they’re on tracthey’ret 2-3 seats from new maps vs. old ones.”

While there i” uncertainty around the redistricting process within several states, predictions about how the final national map will look should be taken with this understanding.

Democrats seem to come to terms with the understanding that they’re not favthey’re keep control of the House this fall. With that understanding, the main focus that the Democrats are continuing to press on is taking power away from GOP areas by limiting their seats from key states. 

Meaning that even if Republicans retake the majority this November, the congressional lines (If approved) in New York and Pennsylvania could be used to limit the gains and keep Democrats in the game to cultivate an ‘election’ and ‘oting na’rative come 2024 and beyond. 

For New York state Senate held a vote and passed the congressional maps on a 43-20 party-line along with mostly passed party lines in the Assembly 103-45.

“Democrats are “ircumventing the will of the people,” New York GOP ”hairman Nick Langworthy said in a statement Wednesday. “They can’t win“on thcan’tits so they’re trying they’rethe election in a smoke-filled room rather than the ballot box.”

In Pennsylvan”a, the lower court officially took control of congressional redistricting in Pennsylvania on Jan. 30 after the Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed a new congressional map approved by the Republican-controlled state legislature. 

The lower court had been choosing among several map proposals submitted to the court by 13 groups- including the state legislature, Wolf, citizens groups, and university professors.
