The latest in Indiana

Sept. 14, 2021

On Sept. 14, Indiana House Republicans unveiled their first proposed congressional map. In general, the map doesn’t change Indiana’s overall electoral landscape. Democrats, for instance, would still likely hold two out of the state’s nine House districts. And despite concerns that freshman Rep. Frank Mrvan, a Democrat, would get gerrymandered into a pro-Trump district, this map instead puts him in a seat that still leans Democratic.

However, unsurprisingly, this map does still contain some serious upsides for Republicans. Namely, the 5th District, represented by Republican Victoria Spartz, got a lot safer for the GOP in this map, going from a FiveThirtyEight partisan lean of R+8 to R+22. This, of course, would make it a lot harder for Democrats in the state to target the 5th District — something they’ve tried and failed at before.
