U.S. Supreme Court Unanimously Upholds State-Approved Plan

Statement from Arizona Democratic Party Executive Director Sheila Healy

“Today’s unanimous decision by the U.S. Supreme Court affirming the redistricting plan is a major victory for the citizenry of Arizona.

“Arizona’s voters decided our districts should not only reflect the census data, but the diversity and its need for representation in their state government.

“The Independent Redistricting Commission fulfilled their duty to the people of Arizona in ensuring they complied with the Voting Rights Act, and we’re thrilled this survived yet another GOP-led challenge. Moving forward, we hope Republicans are more responsible in using taxpayer money to attack voter approved measures.”
