Chair Nikki Fried calls overturning of DeSantis map “vindication for Black voters in North Florida”

Today, Second Judicial Circuit Judge J. Lee Marsh struck down the racially gerrymandered congressional district map put in place by Governor Ron DeSantis. In response, the Florida Democratic Party has issued the following statement:

“This decision is vindication for Black voters in North Florida,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried, “who had their representation unfairly and illegally stripped from them as part of Ron’s political games. We applaud Judge Marsh for a fair decision that defended both the rights of the people and the Florida Constitution.

“Ron’s racist congressional map was an affront to democracy and could never be allowed to stand. We look forward to an expedited appeals process and a new map in advance of the 2024 elections — one that gives Black voters in North Florida the representation and respect they deserve.”
