North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Michael Whatley released the following statement in response to the lawsuit filed by liberal redistricting group National Democratic Redistricting Committee:
"This is yet another effort by a party to tie the state up in expensive legal shenanigans because they lost at the Supreme Court of the United States. Instead of working to win on their opponent's maps, as Republicans did, they're now trying to get an unelected body to draw lines to ensure their victory. This isn't about fair maps; It's about Democrats judge-shopping in order to subvert democracy."
