The new map draws Democratic Reps. Brad Miller and David Price together into Priceâ€™s 4th district and puts Democratic Reps. Mike McIntyre and Larry Kissell together in Kissellâ€™s 8th district.

Tar Heel State Republicans attributed the changes made to the new map largely to the requests of Democratic Rep. G.K. Butterfield, an accusation he denied.
