Less Red For Broward? FL House Releases Redistricting Maps

Alcee Hastings cannot be pleased.

The Florida House of Representatives has released several redistricting maps. You can read the maps for yourself here. A few quick thoughts:

–FL House 97 still exists, but may no longer include Weston.

–Most of Weston goes to FL House 104, which may explain why Hazelle Rogers is eye-balling the Broward County Commission.

–US Congress CD 20, home to Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Out of Touch) loses Weston, moves from north of I-75 going all the way to Lake Okeechobee. It skips Plantation, but picks up much of central Broward west of US-1.

–CD 22, home to Congressman Allen West, pick ups Plantation, but stays mainlly on the east side of Broward and Palm Beach.

–CD 23, Alcee Hastings gets a big change: the district picks up Weston, Davie, Pembroke Pines, Hollywood, North Miami Beach and Miami Beach.

 

More to come…
