Bipartisan Policy Center to Release New Redistricting Report and Hold Timely Discussion on Top Congressional Races

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

This event was postponed due to weather conditions and has been rescheduled for Monday, November 5, 2012.

Washington, D.C. – As part of its 2012 Election Series, Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) will release a new report on the issue of redistricting during a panel discussion on key 2012 congressional races one week before Election Day on Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at 9:00AM.

BPC’s new report, 2012 Redistricting: Will the House be More Polarized than Ever?, outlines the impact of the 2012 redistricting cycle on the number of competitive seats and the make-up of the House of Representatives.

This timely discussion will feature two former congressmen, Rep. Tom Davis (R-VA), who also served as a chair on the National Republican Congressional Committee, and Rep. Martin Frost (D-TX), who previously served as a chair on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Jennifer Duffy, who covers U.S. Senate and state gubernatorial races for The Cook Political Report, will also join the conversation. Secretary Dan Glickman, BPC Senior Fellow and former Representative from Kansas will introduce the participants, and John Fortier, Director of BPC’s Democracy Project will moderate the panel.
