Members of the Ohio Senate Government Oversight Committee hear testimony on a new map of state congressional districts on Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2021, at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.

The National Redistricting Action Fund, a group backed by former Attorney General Eric Holder, has filed a court challenge to Ohio's four-year congressional map.

The map gives Republicans an advantage in 12 of Ohio’s 15 congressional districts and was passed by Republicans in the legislature, then signed by Gov. Mike DeWine earlier this month.

The Ohio Supreme Court will consider the legal challenge from the Holder group, which contends that the new map violates the voter-backed reforms established in 2018.

And with the Thanksgiving leg of the holiday season behind it, the Ohio General Assembly returns to the grindstone to spend the remaining $850 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act dollars.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, our weekly reporter roundtable previews the coming legal battle over redistricting and more.
