State Week: Democrats unveil new congressional map
After months of speculation, Democrats Friday offered the first glimpse at proposed congressional district boundaries, which could determine political power for the next decade. Early indications are the maps could expand Democrats' edge in the state's congressional delegation by an additional seat. Republicans call the boundaries "shameful, partisan gerrymandering." The map could be approved in the fall session during the next two weeks.
Host Sean Crawford is joined by Professor Emeritus Charlie Wheeler, Statehouse Editor Hannah Meisel and Mike Miletich, the Capitol Bureau Chief for Gray TV.
