Pennsylvania Governor Defends Plan For Election With New Map
Pennsylvania's governor and elections officials want the state's highest court to stand by its ruling establishing new congressional districts.
The Wolf administration argues House Speaker Mike Turzai and Senate President Joe Scarnati's request offers nothing new and should be turned down.
Turzai and Scarnati have a similar request pending with the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Wolf administration says it's moving ahead with the new map for the May 15 primary.
The court filing says putting the new map on hold "would confuse, complicate and undermine those preparations."
Republicans have held a 13-5 majority in the state's congressional delegation since passing a 2011 map.
