Illinois Republicans say the Census numbers show the state’s new political map is wrong. Republican lawmakers yesterday said the map is constitutionally incorrect because Democrats drew it before they had the actual Census numbers that show where people live. House Republican Leader Jim Durkin says the maps are ‘unlawful and unusable.’ Republicans want the maps redrawn. Democrats say they have questions about the Census itself and may challenge the count that shows Illinois lost people as a whole.
