Republicans File Lawsuits Concerning New Legislative Maps

The US Justice Department has approved the legislative maps drawn up by the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission. But on Friday, conservative Republicans  filed two lawsuits. The Payson Roundup reports that the filings ask for a three-judge federal panel to draw new congressional district lines next year and new state legislative district lines before the August elections.

The lawsuits claim that the Independent Redistricting Commission packed some districts with Republican voters to give Democrats an advantage in adjoining districts.

The Justice Department’s prompt approval of the maps means that this fall’s elections will take place in the new districts since courts probably won’t be able to act in time.

The Commission’s maps split Gila County in two and moved northern Gila County from a Flagstaff-dominated congressional District 1 to a western Arizona-dominated District 4. Incumbent Congressman Paul Gosar has moved from Flagstaff to Prescott to run in the new District 4.
