Video: Take a tour of Asheville’s newly proposed Congressional Districts
Posted on by Christopher George, David Forbes and Jake Frankel
Take a tour of the controversial proposed dividing line between North Carolina’s 10th and 11th Congressional Districts with Xpress reporters Jake Frankel and David Forbes. Released July 1 and then later revised July 19, the proposed line would divide Asheville, placing most of the city in the 10th District (currently represented by Republican Patrick McHenry of Hickory), while leaving some portions in Democrat Heath Shuler’s 11th District. For more on the controversy, including the latest Congressional Redistricting map, check out Xpress’ ongoing coverage here.
