CONCORD – Earlier today, Representative Bob Lynn (R-Windham) responded to concerns of gerrymandering by confirming that political advantage motivated Republicans’ proposed re-drawn Congressional maps. During the House Special Committee on Redistricting, Rep. Lynn said: “…were political considerations something in the mix? Of course they were.”


Following these comments, Senator Rebecca Perkins Kwoka (D-Portsmouth) issued the following statement:

“The House Republicans’ proposed re-drawn Congressional districts map is among the most egregiously gerrymandered proposals we’ve ever seen in this state. And today, Representative Lynn removed any doubt by confirming that, indeed, political influence - and not the simple adjustment of the district for population changes of the state - informed their proposal. The House GOP proposal is so obviously motivated by putting party over country, that even members of their own party can’t deny their own gerrymandering.”
