Arnold Schwarzenegger has muscled his way into an Arizona political dispute.

The former California governor is one of a number of people defending the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission in a lawsuit headed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

A range of groups — from Republicans and Democrats to government-reform advocates to historians — have filed 14 briefs supporting the commission, arguing independent commissions like Arizona’s are essential to combating gerrymandering across the country and are allowed by the U.S. Constitution.

State lawmakers want to stop the commission from drawing congressional districts, which are changed every 10 years following the Census. Lawmakers say the Constitution grants that authority exclusively to the Legislature.
