New York Congressional Map Ruled Invalid by State's Highest Court

The New York Court of Appeals has sided with lower courts, ruling the state's previously-enacted congressional map is invalid. The redistricted State Senate map was also thrown out.

The court said new maps need to be redrawn for this year's elections, likely necessitating the move of primaries for these offices to August. 

The state's current U.S. House delegation is comprised of 19 Democrats and 8 Republicans. The invalidated map would have given Democrats up to three additional seats in the November elections, with Republicans losing four. The state is losing a seat based on 2020 Census results. 

As the redrawn map will likely be less advantageous to Democrats, the party is now in an even more precarious position with regards to holding the House after the midterm elections.
