Claudia Tenney’s District Eliminated Under New Redistricting Plan
The congressional district represented by Republican Claudia Tenney would vanish under a newly-released proposal drawn up by New York state Democrats.
The revised redistricting plan released late Sunday reflects the loss of one district due to the results of the 2020 census.
The proposal would put Binghamton and the southern portion of Broome County in the new 19th District.
That district would extend east to include Delaware, Greene, Ulster and Columbia counties, incorporating areas now represented by Democrat Antonio Delgado.
Northern Broome County and all of Tioga County would become part of the new 23rd District, which would stretch west to include Chemung, Steuben, Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties.
Tenney's office on Monday said the congresswoman had not yet released a comment on the new redistricting plan, which is expected to be approved by the state legislature this week.
New York state Republican chairman Nick Langworthy said the newly-drawn maps are "the most brazen and outrageous attempt at rigging the election to keep Nancy Pelosi as Speaker..
Langworthy said Republicans are "reviewing all of our legal options to protect the voices of millions of New Yorkers."
