New York’s Latest Congressional Map Proposal is ‘Absolutely Brutal’ for Democrats

The latest New York congressional district map seems to give Republicans a major advantage compared to the other draft previously pushed by Democrats.

A January ruling found that the initial map was the result of “improper gerrymandering.”

According to Fox News:

“[A]bsolutely brutal in what’s likely their most unfavorable environment since ‘94,” tweeted Democratic consultant and former chief of staff for the New York attorney general Neal Kwatra in response to the news.

The public will have until Wednesday to provide input on the new map to McAllister, and the final map is due Friday,

The first map had placed Democrats in a clearly favored position in 22 of the state’s 26 districts, according to the outlet, while the new one featured eight districts that could go either way.

One development from the proposed map would complicate the existing makeup of the House, as it would place House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler and House Oversight Committee chairwoman Carolyn Maloney in the same district

Democrats had sought an emergency injunction in federal court to block the ruling that the original map was not in accordance with proper procedure. U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan rejected the effort last week.

That’s great news. Maybe the people of NY will wake up. The sooner the better.
Otherwise, you will get exactly what you deserve.
People think NY is Manhattan. Not true.
Many conservatives up state.
