New Jersey’s popular Gov. Chris Christie
is getting involved in redrawing legislative districts that have been unfair to Republicans in the Garden State, the Newark Star Ledger reports
The Republican governor is attending a meeting Monday where a commission is redrawing the state’s legislative district map. The new map is due Sunday. The commission is made up of five Democrats and five Republican with one independent, who could act as the tie-breaking vote, if needed.
Christie has said that the current legislative district map, which favors Democrats, is “unfair and unconstitutional.”
"I have confidence in the five (Republican) people who are on the redistricting commission,” he said in February. "I have not got into that level of detail on it, except to say that the five folks who I have on there I have complete confidence in."
Redrawing the state legislative boundaries goes a long way towards determining which party controls the state Legislature.
