Longtime former SCGOP Chair Katon Dawson entered the ongoing standoff over Congressional redistricting this afternoon, releasing a letter encouraging legislators to support the pending compromise map being worked out by legislators over the one passed by the Senate several weeks ago.
It appears likely that a compromise effort is coming forth from our S.C. House of Representatives and will be sent to the S.C. State Senate on Tuesday for an up or down vote. I am asking that Republican lawmakers support the Senate and House redistricting compromise amendment, which is being drafted by leadership from both bodies and that this compromise also be supported by Governor Haley.
A copy of this letter is provided for our readers by reading the full article.
Look for more analysis and discussion of this process soon.
