Suhas Subramanyam, Democratic candidate for Delegate in the 87th House district, has released the following statement about this morning’s Supreme Court decision:
“I am grateful that the Supreme Court has recognized that hundreds of thousands of Virginians have been voting in racially gerrymandered districts that suppress their votes. The right to vote and be properly represented is essential to our democracy. Voters must be able to pick their elected representatives, not the other way around. To restore trust in our government institutions in Virginia, we must fair, nonpartisan redistricting and an end to legislators drawing districts for themselves. I vow to fight for fair redistricting and expanded voting rights in the Commonwealth."
