    A North Carolina federal court on Tuesday struck down the state's GOP-drawn congressional map, saying the districts result in partisan gerrymandering, according to multiple reports. In a nearly 200-page opinion, the three-judge panel ruled that state Republicans drew excessively partisan districts when previously ordered to redraw the state's congressional map. "Having concluded that the 2016 Plan violates the Equal Protection Clause, the First Amendment and Article I of the Constitution, we now must determine the appropriate remedy," the court wrote in its opinion.



    Let us hope this is a sign of things to come. For too long the GOP has used the redrawing of districts to gain an unfair advantage in elections. The states district boundaries were not designed to be redrawn in order to give one political party an advantage over the other. Well done judges!
