Some worry Pa. court’s congressional map dilutes black votes

The court’s new map completely re-numbers all the state’s districts, so it can be confusing to compare specific ones. But the districts with the largest proportions of black voters are now the 2nd and 3rd.

    Some worry Pa. court's congressional map dilutes black votes
    Political groups around Pennsylvania are working to figure out what the state Supreme Court's new congressional map will mean for their agendas. Several organizations that have backed efforts to redraw the districts say they are concerned that the new plan may dilute votes from black communities.
