Last week, Republican U.S. Sen. Richard Burr and Democratic U.S. Rep. David Price announced they will be seeking re-election. In past years, a Republican had decided to retire from the House seat in Durham and then the Senate seat in Asheville. The result, state Democrats say, has been to tilt the North Carolina political landscape even more so toward Republicans.
"I think there's absolutely no question that, unless there are major redistricting changes, Republicans will remain the majority," state Sen. Jeff Jackson, D-Mecklenburg, said.
In each of the previous three elections, at least one House district that was already held by a Democrat will have been won by a Republican. Last year, the 4th Congressional District, in eastern Mecklenburg County, became the last House seat in the state won by a Democrat.
By redistricting in 2011, that district was shifted to the outer rim of the state, and two new Republican districts were created.
On Wednesday, the state House and Senate approved an amendment to the state constitution that gives the General Assembly broad control over the process of redrawing legislative and congressional boundaries. The House and Senate, at the urging of Republican legislative leaders, approved the amendment by narrow margins, 149-147.
The measure, which would give the Republicans a veto-proof majority in both houses of the General Assembly, had no more than a 50 percent majority in the House. Democrats, who hold 47 of the 100 House seats, voted no, while the 15 Republicans, who hold a simple majority, voted yes. A bipartisan coalition of six Democrats and six Republicans voted no.
The measure will be put on the November ballot. If it passes with greater than 50 percent support, it goes to voters in November. If it fails, Republicans would have to make changes through a constitutional convention to pass it.
Republicans will control the General Assembly until the next election in 2016.
Most of the new districts are in rural areas, while the 4th District is a 0b46394aab
