Rep.-elect Tom Malinowski appeared to come out against a redistricting constitutional amendment being pushed by legislative leaders in Trenton.
“From coast to coast, we’re fighting the GOP over partisan gerrymandering,” Malinowski said on Twitter. “Whatever NJ’s legislature does on redistricting, I hope it takes into account the necessity of Democrats keeping moral high ground in this national fight.”
The amendment would impose a formula on the redistricting process that would require at least a quarter of the state’s 40 legislative districts have a vote margin within five percentage points of the average of statewide elections over the 10 years preceding redistricting.
It would also reduce the number of members each major state party chair appoints to the redistricting commission to two.
