Snyder Signs Michigan Redistricting Map Into Law

"Even if these gerrymandered maps are allowed to stand, I am running for reelection to Congress because we need representatives who are focused on Michigan's future rather than being locked into the past," said Peters in a statement. "This map will affect who will represent Michigan families in Congress until 2023, and I will be carefully weighing what will be best for Michigan's future, not just next November, but over the next ten years." The new map also makes GOP Rep. Thad McCotter's 11th District four points more Republican, and, to a limited extent, shores up Republican Reps. Dan Benishek, Tim Walberg, Dave Camp and Fred Upton. Democratic Rep. John Conyers' Detroit district is also dramatically changed in the map, although it remains solidly Democratic, and he has already drawn several primary challengers ahead of 2012.
