Colorado Supreme Court Hands Democrats Major Redistricting Victory | Democrats scored a major victory in the battle over redistricting today when the Colorado Supreme Court selected their new congressional map over the Republicans’ proposal. Per state law, each party submitted competing redistricting plans to a district court judge after the state legislature was unable to agree on a map. The state Supreme Court today affirmed the previous ruling in favor of the Democrats. The Republican plan would have done little to change the current congressional districts, despite population shifts within the state over the last decade. The Democrats’ map is expected to create more competitive congressional districts than currently exist in the Centennial State.
