Republicans could be poised for massive gains in the state of Florida thanks to the upcoming redistricting process that the GOP is set to control in the state.
“FLORIDA: if you thought things couldn’t get worse for Dems…it can. FL could be the GOP’s biggest redistricting weapon of 2021,” Cook Political Report editor Dave Wasserman said on Twitter. “FL is poised to gain two seats. At a minimum, Rs could easily add two new safe R seats (right) to the current 16R-11D map (left).”
Because the FL Sup Ct has turned sharply right since 2015, Rs could be even more aggressive — in defiance of FL’s Fair Districts amendments.
At the extreme end, Rs could attempt a 21R-8D gerrymander (below), which could cost Dems almost their entire House majority. pic.twitter.com/uxl8hiliJo
