The two-year battle over congressional lines in New York state has finally come to an end after Democratic state lawmakers agreed on a new set of lines in time for the 2024 election. The map itself makes only slight adjustments from the one released by a special master in 2022 that was used during the midterms.
The new lines are also only slightly different from what the independent redistricting commission approved just a couple of weeks ago. In the end, the maps give Democrats a slight advantage in several competitive districts, particularly in the Hudson Valley, Long Island and in Central New York.
Two guests joined Jonathan Gordon to discuss the maps and take a look back at the two-year-long legal fight - law professor and redistricting expert Jeffrey Wice and Pace University law professor Ben Gershman.
