Description

In this three-part series, Assad and Ayers take a look at how the once a decade task of reapportionment, adjusting federal, state, and local legislative districts to account for current Census numbers. What once was a "housekeeping chore for map-drawing bureaucrats is a bare-knuckled political brawl that not only has Republicans fighting Democrats, but also allies fighting each other." The Morning Call's analysis finds that a GOP backed plan would increase the Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives from 222-to-210 to 227-205. The series also looks at how Blacks and Latinos are trying to shore up their numbers and create a minority heavy legislative district.
