New Florida congressional map

The new map was validated by the U.S. Justice Department on May 1. The Florida Senate gave their final seal of approval to the proposed political maps for the next decade and sent them off to the court and governor for review on a 32-5 vote on Feb. 9. The 27-district map has nine districts favoring Democrats, 16 favoring Republicans and two that could swing either way.
