COLUMBUS, Ohio (Statehouse News Bureau) — Gov. Mike DeWine has made it clear he’s not a fan of the legislative redistricting maps he voted for as part of the Ohio Redistricting Commission.

Now, DeWine is indicating he’s not happy with the proposed Congressional maps from state lawmakers either.

“I’ve looked at the two from the Democrats’ side and the Republicans’ side and I think it’s pretty clear that neither one of these maps is going to fly.”

DeWine said the maps are a starting point for discussion. He has said he didn’t like the legislative maps approved by Republicans on the commission but voted for them when it became clear there was no hope of compromise.

Those maps are the subject of a trio of lawsuits before the Ohio Supreme Court, with arguments set for next month.
