Ran Coble, executive director of the NC Center for Public Policy Research, tells host Barlow Herget why the new redistricting maps represent partisan, hardball politics at its finest...or worst. What will the new districts do to Democrats in the state legislature and Congress?  Will the new districts mean Republicans, after the 2012 Election, hold a 10-3 Republican edge in North Carolina's congressional delegation that now has a 7-6 Democratic majority? Coble explains why North Carolina's redistricting maps must get federal approval and why he believes there will be lawsuits objecting to the new districts.
