PRICE STATEMENT ON SUPREME COURT NC GERRYMANDERING RULING
Washington – Congressman David E. Price (NC-04) released the following statement responding to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to affirm a lower court ruling that the North Carolina congressional districts drawn by the General Assembly in 2011 were unconstitutional.
“This decision confirms what we already knew: Republicans in the General Assembly violated the Constitution with their discriminatory gerrymander in 2011.
“General Assembly Republicans clearly cannot be trusted to draw fair districts. We can only guarantee true equal protection for North Carolina voters regardless of race or party by establishing an independent, non-partisan redistricting commission.”
