Big Supreme Court case started with gerrymandered map in North Carolina

The U.S. Supreme Court is hearing a big case Wednesday with important implications for elections.

The case started in 2020 in North Carolina after the Republican-controlled state legislature drew a new congressional map. The North Carolina Supreme Court subsequently threw out that map, arguing it was gerrymandered.

Here & Now‘s Deepa Fernandes looks at the back story on this case with Steve Harrison, politics and government reporter for WFAE.
