Florida Republicans will adopt one of the most aggressive congressional maps.
The new map adds four districts for the GOP while eliminating three held by Democrats.
That would create twenty seats that favor Republicans and eight that lean toward Democrats.
The Florida House is expected to pass the map tomorrow then send it to DeSantis for signature.
“I think they are good maps that will be able to be upheld,” said Joe Gruters, chairman of the state Republican Party.
Democrats would almost certainly challenge the map. Yesterday, Democrats clashed with Republicans over the proposal’s constitutionality and argued it violated the Voting Rights Act’s prohibition on racial gerrymandering.
It is unlikely any challenge would be decided in time to effect the November elections.
