On Jan. 12, the Rhode Island Special Commission on Reapportionment voted 15-2 to move forward with a congressional map that is very similar to the current one. Like the original map, both of Rhode Island’s congressional seats will be solidly Democratic; in fact, both districts essentially retain their partisan leans. The map will now go to the legislature for its approval.
