Ward Doesn't Like Redistricting Plan

Redistricting the state's legislative boundaries is always a contentious time.  This year is no different.

The Republican controlled house has drawn lines that has raised the ire of DFL-ers. 

DFL State Representative John Ward of Brainerd tells KLKS News, the Republicans are proposing to take away some of his stronger DFL precincts.  He says the Governor wanted a bipartisan approach to redistricting, but he says it has been anything but that.

There will likely be broad differences between the Governor's plan and those of the legislature requiring court intervention.
