Maps Lead to Governors Desk

Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin have signed-off on the Democratic governor’s proposed political maps, but it remains to be seen if he will sign them.

Both the State Assembly and State Senate yesterday approved the maps that the governor drew. Those maps could give Democrats control of the legislature for the first time in more than a decade. Republican Senator Duey Stroebel said Republicans have a ‘gun to their head,’ and are approving the maps to try and head-off a worse set from the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Democrats say the vote was rushed, and say they want to see what the supreme court does.

Governor Evers yesterday said he’d sign the maps if lawmakers approved them without changes.
