Judges brand Senate Dct. 48 an 'extreme gerrymander' that must be redrawn

State Sen. Chuck Edwards said he remains confident in his re-election campaign despite the fact that his is one of the Senate districts that a court branded an "extreme partisan gerrymander" that must be redrawn.

“I’m still confident I’ll be in a good position,” he said Wednesday during a visit to Stepp's Hillcrest Orchard along with U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows. “I don’t see that the makeup of the district is going to change materially. I don’t think ‘sue till blue’ is going to work in Western North Carolina.”
