Republicans have been very vocal about pretty much everything regarding the newly drawn redistricting maps. They’ve even filed multiple law suits. Democratic Senator Doris Turner understands the argument behind the Census data, but ensured constituents that this was as open of a process as it could be.
Senator Turner says they have to wait on the lawsuits, but she intends to continue representing everyone in the 48th District that was there when she took office regardless of what the maps say.
The maps may look different, but Senator Turner says Christian County will still be in her jurisdiction.
By the nature of the process, redistricting can cause some tension between the two parties every decade, says Senator Turner.
Senator Turner appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
