Forward Majority Statement on the Supreme Court’s Landmark Gerrymandering Rulings

June 26, 2019

NEW YORK – Forward Majority Co-Founder Vicky Hausman released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in Rucho v. Common Cause and Benisek v. Lamone:

“Today’s decision from the Supreme Court is a stark reminder that the courts will not save us from partisan gerrymandering. With redistricting occurring immediately following the 2020 election, Republicans continue to hold absolute control over state governments in highly strategic battlegrounds and remain well positioned to gerrymander themselves into dozens of congressional seats through 2032.

“The only way we can truly end gerrymandering is at the ballot box and it’s never been more critical that Democrats check Republican power in key battleground states like Florida, Texas, North Carolina and Georgia — before its too late.”If we do not invest in this fight now, we will pay the price for decades to come.”
