The latest in Minnesota

Nov. 23, 2021

On Nov. 23​​, the majority Democrats in the Minnesota House of Representatives proposed a new congressional map that would largely aim to preserve the status quo of four Democrats and four Republicans in the state’s U.S. House delegation. The map would shore up the seat of Democratic Rep. Angie Craig in the suburbs and exurbs south of Minneapolis-St. Paul by moving her seat from D+1 to D+5. It would also shift the northeastern 8th District of Republican Rep. Pete Stauber so that it covers the entire northern half of the state, while pushing the very rural 7th District of Republican Rep. Michelle Fischbach farther south and east to pick up population. Both seats need to add population, so the lines on the eventual map could look similar to this proposal.

However, Republicans control the Minnesota Senate and may balk at the Democratic map because it makes Craig less vulnerable. Regardless, there’s a good chance Democrats and Republicans will be unable to come to an agreement on congressional lines. That would be fitting, as Minnesota has a long history of judicial mapmaking: A federal or state court has drawn the new map in each post-decennial census redistricting cycle since 1980.
