New Hampshire Republican Gov. Chris Sununu says that he will veto a GOP-backed redistricting plan that would tilt the state’s 1st Congressional District toward Republicans while solidifying the Democrats’ advantage in the 2nd District. Sununu, speaking with Mike Pomp on the Pulse of NH’s Morning Information Center, said that the proposed congressional redistricting map is not in the best interest of New Hampshire.
The Senate’s 13-11 vote in favor of the plan yesterday followed House passage of the bill in January on a vote of 186-164. Republicans lead by a narrow majority in the Legislature. Overturning a veto requires a two-thirds majority in both bodies.
