Maps Lead to More Political Static

Wisconsin’s governor says the new legislative maps that are 99 percent of what he drew are not his maps.

Governor Evers yesterday promised to veto the maps that the State Assembly passed yesterday afternoon. Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says the only reason Democrats won’t take 99 percent as a win is because they believe they can get even more from the liberal-majority Supreme Court in March. Evers’ maps drew new districts that forced more than a dozen current Republican lawmakers to run against each other. Vos says Republicans trimmed that number down. The governor says those changes are gerrymandering.
