Inslee Statement on Federal Court Upholding Pennsylvania’s Maps
Today, DGA Chair Gov. Jay Inslee released the following statement in response to the news that a panel of federal judges rejected a Republican challenge to Pennsylvania’s newly drawn Congressional map:
“Today’s ruling is a huge victory for Governor Tom Wolf and the people of Pennsylvania in the fight against Republican gerrymandering. Governor Wolf played a critical role in this process by rejecting earlier Republican efforts to further gerrymander the state.
“Governor Wolf’s leadership shows the importance of having a Democratic governor who will stand up for fairer maps and against Republican gerrymandering. The DGA is committed to electing more Democratic governors across the country this November who will unrig the map and lead to a fairer, more representative Congress.”
