The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has finally made a decision.
No more waiting.
Pennsylvania’s redistricting map is set.
The PA court decided to go with a map called the “Carter Plan” that is apparently very favorable toward Democrats.
The map creates eight red districts compared to six blue districts, with three more districts currently qualifying as a tossup.
Republicans never really had a chance when it came to redistricting in Pennsylvania, as the state’s Supreme Court is democrat-controlled.
In fact, they even got one Democrat justice to side with two Republicans in the dissent, but it still wasn’t enough. Four of the five liberals stuck with the Carter plan, leaving Debra Todd as the only Democrat justice to side with the dissent.
Even with one of their own flipping, the advantage was too much for conservatives to overcome in the Keystone State.
