Brilliant Move By DeSantis Could Bring an End to Nancy Pelosi

Republicans control the state legislature in Florida, and because of this, it could get even worse for Democrats as the state legislature begins its redistricting process this year.

FiveThirtyEight frets about the fact that Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis did not bend to the demands of moderate Republicans who wanted to appease liberal Democrats, according to a new report.

As a result it will become even more challenging for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to maintain her iron grip on the US House and it will put her speakership in jeopardy, given the clear probability that Republicans will retake the lower chamber in the November midterm elections.

Democrat strategists are worried that Republicans are planning to exploit the state’s rapid population growth, particularly along the key I-4 corridor, which experienced the biggest increase over the past decade, in order to eliminate some of the state’s congressional seats. This is similar to the Democratic plan to encircle GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger’s seat in blue Illinois.

On Thursday, the Florida Legislature finally caved to DeSantis’s wishes and passed one of his proposed congressional maps — the last major piece in the national redistricting puzzle. And befitting DeSantis’s national reputation (and ambitions), it is a dream map for partisan Republicans, single-handedly adding four new Republicans to the U.S. House of Representatives. But while DeSantis’s uncompromising insistence on maximizing Republican power may give him a nice story to tell if he runs for president, it could also be the map’s undoing in court, the report stated.

Florida’s soon-to-be congressional map (it will go into effect once DeSantis signs it) creates 18 seats with a FiveThirtyEight partisan lean1 of R+5 or redder and only eight seats with a partisan lean of D+5 or bluer. (The remaining two seats fall into the “highly competitive” category between R+5 and D+5.)

Essentially, this map is a guarantee that Democratic representatives in Florida will lose three of their seats in the House.

A new map proposes applying the 21st Amendment directly to the seats held by Democratic Rep. Al Lawson, Charlie Crist, Stephanie Murphy, and possibly Val Demings.

It is not surprising that Democrats in the state are upset with this decision.

“It is appalling, but not surprising, that the Republican Legislature has abdicated its constitutional duty to draft and pass congressional maps to the governor,” Manny Diaz, chair of the Florida Democratic Party, complained in a statement.

“As proven by the proposed map released today, Gov. DeSantis is hell-bent on eliminating congressional seats where Florida’s minority communities have the ability to elect representatives of their choice and he is imposing his own partisan political preferences on Florida’s congressional map,” he added.

A number of Democrats have already vowed to file a lawsuit challenging Florida’s redistricting map.
