Proposed New York congressional map sows chaos for Democrats

The recently released draft of the redrawn New York congressional map has sparked chaos within the Democratic Party, with the latest version pitting multiple members against each other in potential primaries.

Top lawmakers in the state have blasted the latest proposal, which was crafted by a nonpartisan special master after the initial map was struck down by a New York judge who ruled that it was too heavily gerrymandered in favor of Democrats; it is expected to be challenged in the courts.

“The draft redistricting map viciously targets historic Black representation in NY, and places 4 Black members of Congress into the same district,” House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said on social media.
