It's hard to overstate how crazy a request this is. They are asking the Supreme Court to decide a constitutional claim that has NOT been briefed or argued in our case before the Supreme Court, in order to prevent a different court in MD from getting to the bottom of the facts.

If it didn't have the votes originally, Republicans wouldn't have resorted to fleeing the state. Sounds like Peter Courtney trying to save face

Oregon Republicans flee the state to block a climate change bill, one of them threatens to shoot state troopers if they try to bring him back, far-right militias offer up their support, & Democrats ... just cave. This is an alarming sign of the breakdown of legislative democracy

Translation for non-Wisconsinites: The State Superintendent is a statewide elected position that Dems are more likely to win. Governorship is a statewide elected position that GOP is more likely to win. GOP majority overruling at least two prior decisions to shift power here.

It doesn't change her district at all. The only changes involve Districts 6, 7, 8, 16, 21, 22, 23, 31, and 35 (3 has superficial changes)

The U.S. Supreme Court isn't the only venue where voting rights battles are taking place. Practically every state constitution contains protections that could be used to protect voting rights, & cases such as this are proceeding in state courts

Just FYI, not all the hypothetical changes I'm looking at in California favor Dems (please excuse the typos)

Sure, here's the bulk of Kern County, with the municipality of Bakersfield highlighted. No other city or census place is split (using the 2011 boundaries, since that was when redistricting happened)
