Raleigh, NC — Following today's Redistricting Committee meeting, Chairman Robin Hayes released the following statement:

"We congratulate Republicans on leading the redistricting committee in a transparent and open manner, as well as adopting criteria that will allow for a fair and legal redrawing of the legislative districts. While Republicans voted to respect geographic compactness, city and town boundaries, and split fewer precincts, Democrats voted against these measures. In an astounding show of hypocrisy and political hutzpah, Democrats voted against drawing colorblind districts that wouldn't have considered racial data. After accusing Republicans of racial gerrymandering, Democrats had the nerve to insist that new districts consider race. Voters across the state should see through this blatant act of Democratic hypocrisy and doublespeak." - NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes
