NDRC Statement on Final Missouri Congressional Map

May 18, 2022

Washington, D.C. — Today, Kelly Burton, President of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, released the below statement following Missouri Governor Mike Parson signing the congressional map into law:  

“After months of Republican infighting and an unnecessarily long, drawn out redistricting process, the congressional map enacted in Missouri preserves the status quo and secures the power of urban voters in Kansas City and St. Louis. For months Republicans tried to gerrymander themselves into illegitimate representation in the congressional delegation and were stopped by public pressure. Their failure is a win for all Missourians who have for years been fighting against gerrymandering in the Show-Me state.”
