Gov. Henry McMaster has signed into law a new congressional redistricting plan based on the 2020 census. It’s not drastically different from the plan adopted after the 2010 census, but it was drawn to lock-in the existing advantage Republicans have with six solid GOP districts and one solid Democratic district. It maintains the Sixth Congressional District as a majority-minority district, and it increases potential Republican strength in the coastal First District.
