McClure statement on Senate passage of a Congressional redistricting map

State Senator Steve McClure (R-Springfield) released the following statement after the Illinois Senate voted to pass a new congressional map:

“This is a partisan, gerrymandered map that is designed solely to help retain and grow the political power of one party at the expense of citizens. This map will lead to less choices for voters and a more extreme partisan divide. If there was ever proof that politicians have no business drawing district maps, it’s this.”
