"Around the country, politicians are waging high-stakes battles over new congressional lines that could influence which party controls the US House of Representatives after the 2024 election.

In North Carolina, the Republicans who control the state legislature have crafted a map that could help them flip at least three seats. Democrats, meanwhile, could pick up seats under news lines in Alabama, Louisiana and New York.

In all, the fate of anywhere from 14 to 18 House seats across nearly a dozen states could turn on the results of these fights. Republicans currently hold just a narrow majority in the US House, with one vacancy. That razor-thin margin was underscored by the GOP’s recent chaotic struggle to elect a new speaker."
