Wisconsin court ruling could change prospects for Democrats nationwide

Hosted by

Gerrymandering ran up against a panel of three federal judges in Wisconsin yesterday. The court struck down Wisconsin’s legislative maps. They were redrawn by Republicans five years ago. The decision is expected to end up at the Supreme Court. If it stands, it could have wider implications for control of Congress. It could also affect the control of who runs state legislatures.
