PA congressmen challenge the state's new map

02.23.18 | Traci Lynn Woolsey

Eight GOP representatives in Pennsylvania filing suit against the Pennsylvania Supreme Court this week, saying the high court overstepped its authority in re-drawing the congressional map.

The group of lawmakers is calling for the 2011 map to remain in place this year --instead of the one put forth on Monday by the state Supreme Court.

Opponents say the jagged lines of the 2011 map make it the most "gerrymandered" in the country.
