Tom Wolf, Governor of Pennsylvania, told the state’s Supreme Court on Tuesday that he will not accept the proposed congressional map that state Republican leaders submitted last week, saying it remains a partisan gerrymander.

Why it matters: Wolf’s move will trigger more political mudslinging after Republicans lambasted a court ruling last month as judicial overreach and partisan. State GOP lawmakers have made efforts to stop the ruling that struck down the current map as unconstitutional, but the U.S. Supreme Court Justice last week declined their request to delay the drawing of a new congressional map before this year's midterm election.
