Republicans Win Ohio Voting-Map Case as Supreme Court Tosses Ruling

  • Supreme Court action follows decision insulating gerrymanders
  • Republicans have consistently won 12 of 16 congressional seats

The U.S. Supreme Court tossed out a lower court ruling that would have required Ohio’s congressional voting map to be redrawn to be less favorable to Republicans.

The move is part of the fallout from the high court’s decision in June insulating partisan gerrymanders from constitutional challenges. A three-judge panel had thrown out a GOP-drawn Ohio map under which Republicans have won 12 of the 16 congressional seats in each of the last four elections.
