Is Redistricting Changing Anything in North Carolina?

Republicans mimic Democrats of old in redistricting ruse (Charlotte Observer/For the Record) In response to criticism about packing minorities into G.K. Butterfield's 1st District, the new version adds some counties and removes voters in southeast Raleigh but includes voters in Durham County. The newly revised maps follow through on previous threats to pit incumbent Democratic Congressmen Mike McIntyre (7th District) and Larry Kissell (8th District) against each other in the same district. It does the same with David Price (4th District) and Brad Miller (13th District), also Democrats.
