Democratic members of the Government Oversight Committee today reacted to public testimony on the House Republican congressional map proposal released Wednesday. The GOP proposal doubles down on historic Republican gerrymandering, favoring GOP candidates 13-2 across Ohio. 

“The Republican-drawn districts aren’t compact, they fail to keep our largest counties together and they unfairly favor Republicans 13-2. This gerrymandered map disrespects the majority of voters who twice demanded fair districts. Ohioans are rightly angry. This map needs a major overhaul to be the bipartisan plan Ohioans expect of us,” said Assistant Whip Rep. Richard D. Brown (D-Canal Winchester), the committee’s Ranking Member.
