From the Associated Press.
Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly is calling for the creation of nonpartisan commission to handle redrawing state legislative and congressional districts after a video surfaced of a top Republican lawmaker discussing how gerrymandering can help oust the state’s sole Democratic member of Congress.
Senate President Susan Wagle can be seen in the video talking to a conservative Wichita group in September that it’s crucial Republicans have the votes to override an anticipated Kelly veto of a GOP-drawn congressional map.
It’s part of an attempt to unseat U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids, who represents the 3rd congressional district in the Kansas City area.
