The latest in Mississippi

Jan. 12, 2022

After the Mississippi state House voted along party lines on Jan. 6 to approve a new congressional map for the Magnolia State, the state Senate followed suit on Jan. 12. The map largely leaves the status quo in place: Although the map moves some turf from the 3rd District into the 2nd District in order to account for population changes, its partisan breakdown is the same as the current map: three white-majority, solidly Republican districts and one Black-majority, solidly Democratic district (the 2nd District). The map now heads to Gov. Tate Reeves for his signature.
