Florida Supreme Court Makes Ruling On Election

Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, was overwhelmingly selected by Republican voters to be Donald Trump’s running mate in 2024, according to a recent survey.

DeSantis is the choice of 27 percent of Republican voters, compared to 15 percent who want former Vice President Pence as Trump’s vice president. Pence is highly unlikely to be Trump’s pick though as the relationship between the two has soured over the 2020 election.

In third place came Nikki Haley, the former ambassador to the United Nations. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas placed fourth with 9 percent among respondents when asked which candidate they would like to see as Donald Trump’s Republican running mate.

According to another poll, Trump would beat Joe Biden in a rematch of the 2016 presidential election.

The survey found that both Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris had disappointing approval ratings.

— Trump is preferred by 50 to 36 percent over Biden;

— Voters are almost 2-1 against Biden even making the ballot in 2024.

Before the presidential election, we have the midterms in which the GOP is expected to retake the House in handy fashion, and possibly the Senate.

Now DeSantis and Republicans in Florida won a huge victory for the upcoming elections at the hands of the Florida Supreme Court.

According to Forbes Magazine, “Florida’s Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a request for a hearing over the state’s controversial new congressional map that eliminates a majority Black district, putting an end—for now—to one of the most high-profile redistricting challenges heading into the midterms.”

“A slew of voting rights groups suing the state wanted the court to consider reinstating an injunction blocking the map,” the report continued. “Leon County Circuit Judge Layne Smith issued an injunction last month blocking the map, ruling the proposal to move the 5th Congressional District out of a majority Black region of north Florida violated the Fair Districts Amendments of the state constitution. A state appellate court quickly moved to overturn the injunction, a decision the state Supreme Court chose to uphold.”

“The court did not rule on the merits of the lawsuit, but its decision to not issue an injunction effectively kills any chance of overturning the map before the midterms,” Forbes added.

Greg Price, a conservative commentator, pointed out how significant this is for Republicans going into the critical midterm elections in November.

“The Florida Supreme Court is leaving DeSantis’ congressional maps in place that create four new GOP-leaning districts. They will be the maps used this November,” Price tweeted.

In a ruling last week, the Kansas Supreme Court ruled Republican redistricting laws are legal. As a result, it will be harder for Kansas’ one congressional delegate to win reelection.

The outlet went on to say:

The court’s opinion was two paragraphs long, saying only that the voters and voting rights group challenging the map “have not prevailed on their claims” that the map violated the state constitution and that a full opinion would come later.

The brief decision was written by Justice Caleb Stegall, who is seen as the most conservative of the court’s seven justices, five of whom were appointed by Democratic governors. During arguments from attorneys on Monday, he questioned whether anyone could clearly define improper partisan gerrymandering.

There are currently numerous lawsuits related to newly redrawn congressional districts throughout the United States as Republicans try to regain the House majority and the evenly divided Senate. There have been lawsuits in 17 states based on maps, according to the Brennan Center for Justice.

In a tweet, Inside Elections reporter Jacob Rubaskin noted the Kansas situation was another hurdle for Democrats: “The redistricting hits keep on coming for Democrats. The Kansas Supreme Court has upheld the congressional map drawn by the GOP-controlled legislature that makes Sharice Davids’ 3rd District more difficult for her. A lower court had struck down the map.”

“In the past, congressional district lines have been reviewed by federal judges and not the state Supreme Court. The conservative-leaning U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision in 2019 that complaints about partisan gerrymandering are political issues and not for the federal courts to resolve,” POLITICO reported.

“It’s elected legislators who are best positioned to determine how to balance out the competing interests,” Republican Attorney General Derek Schmidt told reporters following oral arguments before the state Supreme Court on Monday.

Dinah Sykes, a Democrat, and the State Senate Minority Leader said that Republicans had “disrespected, ignored and gaslit engaged voters from the very start.”

The Kansas map was described as follows by Politico: “Republican legislative leaders argued that based on 2020 election results, Davids still could win her new district. They said their map was a fair way to rebalance the population in each of the state’s congressional districts to make them as equal as possible after 10 years of demographic shifts.”

The string of legal victories for Republicans hopefully will ensure a crushing victory over the socialist Democrats in November.
