PRICE STATEMENT ON PROPOSED CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS

February 17, 2016
Press Release

Washington, DC –Congressman David E. Price (D-NC) released the following statement about the proposed congressional districts drawn by North Carolina General Assembly’s Joint Select Committee on Congressional Redistricting.

“The new districts are no more legitimate than the old. A three-ten split in the House delegation does not reflect the current demographics or voter registration of our state, where more than 50 percent of the popular vote for House seats went to Democrats in the last presidential cycle. The fact that Republicans decided to maintain the current partisan split of seats before they began drawing these new maps demonstrates that they did not set out to ensure fair representation.”
