MILWAUKEE— Sachin Chheda, director of the Fair Elections Project, issued the following statement in response to the Tuesday’s hearing in ongoing federal redistricting litigation:
“The legislature and the governor should work together to pass a fair map that reflects the will of the voters. If they fail to do so, the courts should step in.
“It’s clear from today’s action in federal court that these federal judges best understand the issues they’re facing.
“Federal court is the right place to litigate complex issues around voting rights and reapportionment.”
