The latest in Mississippi

Jan. 24, 2022

On Jan. 24, Gov. Tate Reeves signed Mississippi’s new congressional map into law a few weeks after it passed the legislature along party lines. 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).
