That's largely due to the fact that Democrats are condensed in the state's urban centers while the Republicans are more widely dispersed across the suburban and rural parts of the state. Other House Republicans said they anticipated that Republican leadership would produce a plan for a vote. The high court said it would stay the lower court's order to use the professor's districts in Wake and Mecklenburg counties until the issues with those counties' districts could be heard in more detail.
