Republican redistricting plan maintains GOP electoral advantages

MADISON – Republicans who control the Legislature would maintain a large advantage in Assembly races under a redistricting plan they made public late Wednesday. 

The release of their proposed congressional and legislative maps propelled the state’s redistricting fight into the next stage.

States must draw new maps every 10 years using census data to ensure districts have equal populations. Where the lines go can give one political party a big advantage over the other for a decade.

Republican lawmakers plan to approve their plans as soon as next month, but Democratic Gov. Tony Evers is likely to veto them. That would leave it to the courts to decide how to draw the districts.
