Minnesota congressional boundaries shift under new redistricting maps

Just hours after new maps were released Tuesday, Julius Menchikov was busy printing and mounting huge copies of the map showing new congressional district boundaries.

The boundaries of Minnesota's eight congressional districts will shift around the edges for the decade to come under redistricting maps released Tuesday, with the most dramatic geographic changes occurring in two swing districts in the southern half of the state.

But the political dynamics will feel familiar heading into the 2022 midterm elections.

"Swing districts will remain swing districts," said Todd Rapp, a DFL operative who analyzed the new maps. "The good Democratic districts will remain good Democratic districts. The good Republican districts will remain good Republican districts."
