House GOP Chairwoman Elise Stefanik and NYGOP Chair Ed Cox released the following statement in response to today’s Appellate Division ruling favoring the redrawing of New York’s fair Congressional districts:

“The Appellate Division majority’s conclusion guts the New York Constitution’s explicit prohibition against mid-decade redistricting. When Democrats can’t compete, they cheat. Their illegal gerrymander violated the State Constitution and bucked the will of the voters. The Court of Appeals must overturn this ruling, or Democrats will gerrymander the map to target political opponents and protect political allies – all to the People’s detriment.”
