STATEMENT ON RULING FROM LEON COUNTY COURT ON CONGRESSIONAL REDISTRICTING MAP

Posted

Tallahassee, FL — In response to the ruling from the Leon County Circuit Court on the congressional redistricting map, today Florida Democratic Party Executive Director Scott Arceneaux issued the following statement.

STATEMENT FROM FDP EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR SCOTT ARCENEAUX:

"Last fall, Florida voters overwhelmingly demanded an end to partisan gerrymandering and incumbent protection. The Florida Democratic Party led an unprecedented effort to ensure that the will of the people was heard in the redistricting process and to hold the Republican-led Legislature accountable to Florida's Constitution. We remain concerned about elements of the map and we will continue to evaluate our legal options moving forward. We have and will always be on the side of Florida voters in calling for fairness, transparency, and accountability from Florida's elected officials."
