Pa. Supreme Court to unveil new congressional map

HARRISBURG, Pa. - The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is on the cusp of imposing a new congressional district map for the state's 2018 elections.

The court set a Monday deadline for itself to unveil a map of districts to take effect for the upcoming primary election on May 15.

The state's Democratic-majority high court ruled last month in a party-line decision that Pennsylvania's district boundaries were unconstitutionally gerrymandered.

Republicans have won 13 of Pennsylvania's 18 seats in three elections under the invalidated map, although Democrats hold a statewide registration edge and most statewide offices.

Republican lawmakers have vowed to ask federal judges to block any new map.
