Court orders NY’s congressional map redrawn — delivering potentially massive win for Democrats


An appeals court in New York ordered state leaders to redraw the congressional map on Thursday — which could prove to be a big boon for Democrats nationwide, and a major setback for Republicans seeking to hold the House next year.

The ruling now opens the door for district lines across the Empire State’s 26 congressional districts to be shifted away from those in the court-drawn map adopted in 2022 after Republicans successfully challenged the Democratic-led legislature’s map.
