Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is playing hard for a potential presidential run in 2024.
The New, ‘Improved” DeSantis Congressional Map
DeSantis has pulled off the trick of privilege by writing his own Republican story. He drew nice, cherry red lines around the state, redistricting it to Republican perfection. According to FiveThirtyEight, DeSantis’s new map will add four new Republicans to the U.S. House of Representatives.
More details from FiveThirtyEight: “This is about as big of a Republican bias that Florida’s congressional map could have — and darn close to the most egregiously partisan map in the country. The map has an efficiency gap of R+20, which means Republicans would be expected to win 20 percent more seats under this map than under a hypothetical, perfectly fair map. Because Florida has 28 congressional seats, that translates to a 5.7-seat Republican bias — right on Texas’s heels for the “honor” of having the biggest bias of any state.”
While politicians were protesting the bloody red DeSantis map, the rest of the legislature went ahead with a vote to take away Disney’s right to operate as an independent government, because the Big Mouse supports gay peo– WAIT, WHAT?!?! Disney is an independent government?!?!
As weird/scary as it is, Disney has been running its own special purpose district, Reedy Creek, since 1967, and any changes will have big financial implications for everyone in that area. Voters don’t like financial implications, but Orlando is one of the few blue spots left in the state, so that probably won’t make much of a difference.
And DeSantis (who signed the bill Friday) now has a big move against the wacko lefty libs at Disney to stick in his cap.
DeSantis 2024 is coming.
