NC maps labeled too political or more competitive

RALEIGH State House and Senate district maps are being debated in earnest this week at the Legislature, beginning Monday with a public hearing at ten locations statewide.

The redistricting is based on state population numbers. Lots of district lines are changing to reflect a state that's growing faster in Raleigh and Charlotte than statewide overall.

Democrats argue GOP mapmakers are playing political games by drawing several pairs of incumbent Democrats into the same districts, meaning one of them won't be re-elected next year.

Republicans say the maps are more competitive than before but that they aren't targeting certain Democrats.
