Senate debates legislative map that will shape its 2022 political environment

The Florida Senate may now have reached an agreement about the lines that will govern future political decisions of the Chambers.

A draft map (S 8058The Senate floor adopted the ) six days after the Senate Reapportionment Commission cleared it for full discussion. The map must be approved by the Florida House. However, the chambers have traditionally allowed each other to create their own districts for legislative maps. The maps will ultimately become law without any involvement of the Governor’s Office.

This map has important political implications for members and is currently used to place several incumbent Senators into the chamber. Shared districts. Republican Sens. Dennis Baxley, of Ocala and Keith PerryGainesville: Both reside in the proposed Senate District 9. They have not yet indicated how they will handle that situation.

Further south, maps show Democratic Sens. Lori Berman Tina PolskyPolsky has previously stated that she is located in the same district. This will runIn the nearby proposed Senate District 30, which includes Boca Raton, her home base.

Many people speculate that Sen. Gary Farmer, a Lighthouse Point Democrat may also be interested. The proposed Senate map shows Farmer sharing an area with Miami-Dade Sen. Jason Pizzo, also a Democrat.

A performance analysis by MCI MapsIncludes 22 Senate Districts where voters favored Republican Donald TrumpIn the 2020 presidential election, and 18 that went for Democrat Joe Biden. This is similar to the Existing Senate map. Notably, Trump has been outperformed by Senate Republicans, and the 40-member chamber today includes 24 Republicans.

Sen. Ray RodriguesEstero Republican sen. he chairs the Senate Reapportionment Committee. The Senate map that was drawn in 2012 was rejected by the courts. It was replaced by Judge Christopher J. George ReynoldsWith the Current map.

As questions about racial or ethnic representation have been raised during the process of congressional maps being drawn, they are also driving questions on the floor regarding Senate draft.

Sen. Audrey GibsonReapportionment committee member, Veronica, once again complained about changes to her Senate District 6. Due to term limits, the Jacksonville Republican won’t run for another term. However, she has spoken against reshaping this jurisdiction, which was proposed as Senate District 5 on a map. It leaves out middle class Black Communities, like those in First Coast. She mockingly called the new plan “a duck on the River.”

The Jacksonville Senator filed an amend with the same alternative map (S 8054) she brought to the Senate Legislative Reapportionment Subcommittee. She drew the map on floor and asked Rodrigues how cartographers determined which voters would shift from the proposed SD 5 to the reimagined Senate District 4. This is mainly Nassau County.

Rodrigues also asked Rodrigues about Hispanic development and why there haven’t been more Hispanic-friendly districts. He said that most of the growth was in existing communities. This is evident in several Senate districts, once thought to be places where Hispanic voters could elect a candidate of their choosing into heavily Hispanic areas that are almost certain.

Rodrigues noted that the benchmark map for Senate district districts showed four majorities and one opportunity district for Hispanic voter due to the population distribution based on the U.S. Census data. Five of those five seats are now majority minorities districts. So I would submit that the upgrade from an opportunity district to a majority minority district is reflective of the growth, and it’s reflective of that growth because that is where the population settled.
