On Tuesday the National Redistricting Foundation, a left-leaning group led by former attorney general Eric Holder, filed a lawsuit against the state of Georgia, alleging that state lawmakers gerrymandered two districts based along racial lines, preserving the tightly contested Republican seats for the GOP.

The two districts in question, the 105th and 111th, saw their lines slightly redrawn in 2015.  A pair of Republicans, Joyce Chandler and Brian Strickland, respectively, were already incumbents at the time of the redistricting.  In 2016 both candidates won re-election, with Chandler defeating Donna McLeod by just over 200 votes, and Strickland winning out over Democrat Darryl Payton by nearly 1,000 votes.
