The Michigan Democratic Party debuted their own plan today for reshaping Michigan’s state Senate districts based on 2010 U.S. Census numbers.
The plan was unveiled at a Lansing press conference by Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer, and submitted to the Senate Committee on Redistricting.
“Redistricting should be politically fair and avoid partisan gerrymandering when drawing district boundaries,” Brewer said in a press release. “The map we’ve submitted is politically fair with 15 Republican, 15 Democratic, and eight swing districts, doesn’t create a single district boundary that would split a city or township in two, and only splits six counties. In short, it’s a map that simply makes sense.”
