Paul Fogleman,

Federal judges have ordered North Carolina to redraw two congressional districts … and do it NOW. The long, snake-like district from Greensboro to Charlotte, the 12th represented by Alma Adams of Greensboro, and the First, with long-standing Congressman G.K. Butterfield, both are minority-majority districts. The court said this amounts to racial gerrymandering. Furthermore, the courts said the districts must be redrawn by the March 15 primary. The state has appealed to the U.S. Supreme court for a stay.

Last year the high court forced Alabama to redraw its districts for the same reason. However stage GOP leaders believe a delay is likely. Like falling dominoes, other districts will be affected.
