The Wisconsin Recalls and the Potential to Affect Redistricting
A top official within the Wisconsin Republican Party fears that the growing Democratic effort to recall Republican state Senators for supporting limits on collective bargaining could affect GOP plans to redraw Congressional districts.
“This is potentially an issue in redistricting,” said Mark Jefferson, state GOP executive director. “The Legislature does draw the lines.”
Republicans control both chambers of the state Legislature, but Jefferson acknowledged that Democrats have a chance at winning back the state Senate majority through the recall effort.
