In an unprecedented ruling, federal judges have ruled North Carolina’s congressional map unconstitutionally favors Republicans. The ruling marks the first time a federal court has struck down a congressional map because of political gerrymandering. The judges ruled the map violates the 14th Amendment’s guarantee of equal protection. Republicans have vowed to appeal Tuesday’s ruling. The ruling gives Republicans two weeks to present a “remedial plan” to remap the congressional district.
