The latest in Rhode Island

Feb. 18, 2022

On Feb. 18, Democratic Gov. Dan McKee signed Rhode Island’s new congressional map into law. Earlier this month, lawmakers voted to adopt a redistricting proposal put forward by the Rhode Island Special Commission on Reapportionment that closely resembles the state’s current map: Both of Rhode Island’s congressional seats retain essentially the same partisan leans and will likely remain solidly Democratic, although Republicans hope they can make a play for retiring Democratic Rep. Jim Langevin’s 2nd District.
