SC Lede: Redistricting and You

SC House Redistrict Map 12-03-2021.jpg
SC House of Representatives
House lawmakers voted 96-14 to approve their new district map in light of 2020 Census data. The map merges 10 districts, which may lead to primary challenges, and is forecasted to give Republicans a supermajority in the future. The House is made up of 81 Republicans and 43 Democrats currently.

This edition of the South Carolina Lede for December 4, 2021 features: analysis of the current redistricting maps before state lawmakers; an update on the status of legal challenges against federal vaccine mandates; a break down of the Twitter fight this week between Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA); and more.
