On Capitol Review with Tasmin Mahfuz, Senate President Bill Ferguson (D-Baltimore City), who created the LRAC map, talks about the new congressional boundaries that were approved and why he didn’t agree with the map formed by the Maryland Citizens Redistricting Commission, a group appointed by Governor Larry Hogan (R).
