Philadelphians aren’t the only ones talking about redistricting. In New Jersey, 13 congressional districts will shrink to 12 to meet the needs of new Census data.
One of the state’s representatives will be gone as a result, meaning there’s a lot at stake for the seven Democrats and six Republicans currently serving the state.
A commission of six Dems, six Republicans and a former state attorney general selected by the other 12 has until Jan. 17 to remap the district. WHYY’s Phil Gregory will have more detail for us after today’s meeting.
