Will the D.C. Council overturn Initiative 77? Can a Republican win a U.S. Senate seat in Maryland? And what's going on with the Montgomery County Executive race?
The lines of Maryland’s sixth Congressional District were redrawn in 2011 in a way that benefited Democrats.

Last week, the Supreme Court announced it would hear the case, making it the second partisan gerrymandering case they will hear this session.
