A panel of judges ruled in favor of North Carolina Republicans' redrawn 2020 congressional map Monday, CBS News reports.
The big picture: In October, the judges directed North Carolina's GOP-held state legislature to redraw the map after it found "beyond a reasonable doubt that the 2016 congressional districts are extreme partisan gerrymanders." The new map favors Republicans for eight of the state's 13 congressional seats, whereas they'd previously held 10.
