Democrat Evers vetoes Republican-drawn redistricting maps
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Democratic Gov. Tony Evers has followed through on his promise to veto the Republican-drawn redistricting plans, calling the maps “gerrymandering 2.0.”
Evers, who is up for reelection next year, had vowed to not sign the bills that only strengthen GOP majorities under maps that Republicans enacted a decade ago.
There are lawsuits pending in the Wisconsin Supreme Court and federal court. Now that Evers has vetoed the maps, attention will turn to the courts where the maps for the next decade ultimately will be determined.
Evers vetoed the bills on Thursday.
