Republicans take Cobb and Gwinnett redistricting fights to the State Capitol

Democratic State Lawmakers leaders in Cobb and Gwinnett counties are fighting against new county commission maps that have been drawn up by Republican legislators. 

Republicans have said these new maps are fair, just and will not disenfranchise their voters.

In Cobb, State Rep. Ed Setzler, R-Acworth, says the local process of redrawing the maps is fair because the county commissioners will stay in power. But, District 2 Commissioner Jerica Richardson was drawn out of her seat, according to the Republican map and she would have to move to run again for the same post.
