Republicans held 49 of 53 votes against the Billy McCoy-driven, Democrat redistricting plan. Though the Democrats in the House made much todo that their plan passed committee with only one dissenting vote (Rep. Jim Evans (D) of Jackson), keep in mind that there was only 1 Republican on that redistricting committee in the House.

This means that this will largely stay on partisan lines, which should actually be helpful in future redistricting negotiations. The Senate is up next to release their plan and the redistricting committee set up by Phil Bryant was distinctly more bi-partisan in makeup.
