Republicans represent about 22% of registered New York voters, and currently hold eight of the state’s 27 seats in Congress. But New York now gets one less seat following the 2020 Census, and the situs judi slot online jackpot terbesar new maps would have given Democrats a strong majority of registered voters in 22 of the state’s 26 congressional districts.

The GOP lawsuit cited computer simulations by election analyst Sean Trende, who found the maps were gerrymandered.

The court relied on that analysis in its ruling.

“Trende was accepted by the parties as an expert in elections analysis with particular knowledge of redistricting. His direct testimony and his expert reports also were received in evidence without objection,” the judges wrote.

Former Republican Congressman John Faso, an advisor to the petitioners who brought the lawsuit, said he's happy with the ruling and said the congressional map was “an egregious, unconstitutional gerrymander.”

Legislative leaders indicated they would appeal the decision to the New York Court of Appeals, the state's highest court.

Mike Murphy, a spokesperson Democratic Senate Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, said he was pleased the court affirmed that the Legislature acted within its power to approve the maps.
