NH Redistricting Update

NH House lawmakers will vote next week on a congressional map built around the Interstate 93 corridor despite opposition from NH Gov. Chris Sununu. The House Special Committee on Redistricting voted 8-7 yesterday to recommend a plan that creates a new, Republican-leaning 1st Congressional District by clumping together towns and cities along I-93 in the southern half of the state, with the 2nd District reaching up and around it on both sides. 

Governor Chris Sununu, speaking today on the Morning Information Center with Mike Pomp, says the plan falls short. 

 

Sununu has promised to veto an earlier plan passed by both the House and Senate and has indicated the new one doesn’t make the grade either.
