Today, Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant issued the following statement regarding the failure of the legislature to pass new Congressional maps:
“If Florida Republican leaders were capable of feeling shame, they would be feeling it now. After spending millions of dollars to fight the Fair District amendments over three sessions in three years, the GOP has given up on their efforts to produce a constitutional Congressional map. There are no excuses for this obscene and unprecedented waste of taxpayer resources, and for the illegal actions that got us here.
“Floridians will not forget that when Republicans were asked to govern constitutionally in the sunshine, they simply refused.”
