The Redistricting and Re-Redistricting of the Senate got shot down today by the Missouri Supreme Court due to having too many splits of Jackson and Greene Counties and the attempted replacement of the first Map. The MO Supremes also directed the Congressional Redistricting case to a trial court with a deadline of February 3rd.

So, the Senate Maps are going to another Citizens Commission, and the candidate filing opens on February 28th. Really. (Some dispute as to what is next, KY3 says a judicial commission, even after the decision overruled their ability to revise their map.)

Remember, the map being rejected for violating the Missouri Constitution was drawn by judges. Oops.
