Democrats plan legal fight over redistricting

Apr 26, 2011 2:40:00 PM - thestate.com
Columbia attorney Matthew Richardson, an unsuccessful, Democratic candidate for state attorney general in November's election, will represent House Democrats in a legal fight over redistricting.

Redistricting, the once-a-decade redrawing of state House and Senate lines and congressional seats using new Census data, is expected to get testy as Democrats and Republicans fight to defend their turf.

Democrats, who make minority in the House and Senate, expect to lose seats, particularly in rural parts of the state where population has dropped in the past decade.

House Republicans still are undecided on whether to hire an attorney.
