New political maps pass early challenge
John Chowning sends word of coverage of Franklin Circuit Court Judge Thomas Wingate's denial of a motion from the Kentucky Democratic Party to halt the May 17 Kentucky Primary under new political maps passed in Janaury.
While the motion to halt the elections was denied, the lawsuit was not dismissed, and a full hearing is set for the first of March.
On Wednesday, Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams issued a statment praising Judge Wingate's action. In his statement, Adams called the lawsuit "reckless."
Lawsuits and arguments about redistricting are not unheard of in the 21st Century. 2012 Kentucky elections took place under the 2002 map after a successful challenge to redistricting, and a new map was passed in 2013 as a result.
