A panel of judges in North Carolina ruled on Monday that a new congressional map approved by lawmakers last month will be used for the state's 2020 primaries, saying there was not enough time to determine whether it was a form of partisan gerrymandering. The same three-judge Wake County Superior Court panel several weeks ago blocked the state from using a congressional map created in 2016 in next year's elections, suggesting that map's boundaries were gerrymandered to favor Republicans. Monday's decision clears the way for candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives to file their paperwork to represent new districts drawn on Nov. 15 by North Carolina's Republican-controlled General Assembly.
