A Look at Pennsylvania and North Carolina’s New Maps

North Carolina and Pennsylvania, two fiercely competitive states, have new U.S. Congressional electoral maps since the U.S. Supreme Court refused to overturn the ones imposed by the state courts.

This could be good news for North Carolina Democrats because they’re likely to gain at least one Congressional seat. In Pennsylvania, one Republican-held seat was eliminated, but some Democratic members’ seats are not secure.

Both North Carolina and Pennsylvania have Senate seats up for grabs. In both states, the 2020 presidential results were strikingly close (PA Biden 50%, Trump 48.8%; NC, Biden 48.6%, Trump 49.9%), so they truly are swing states.
