What Redistricting Looks Like In Every State

Republicans fully control the congressional redistricting process. New maps are drawn and passed by the Republican state legislature and signed into law by the Republican governor.

The latest in Florida

Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis submitted his own redistricting plan Sunday. This move came as a surprise even to many Florida Republicans, as it was just days before the Senate plans to vote on its own map. DeSantis has the opportunity to sign or veto any congressional maps, setting the stage for a potential conflict between three competing maps.

The Senate’s proposed map is surprisingly unaggressive and exhibits only a mild Republican bias (an efficiency gap of R+6 and a median seat that closely matches the state’s overall partisanship). It would create 14 Republican-leaning seats and eight Democratic-leaning seats (same as the current map) as well as six highly competitive seats (one more than the current map). After the Senate approved an amendment Wednesday that slightly changed the 24th District to include all of Miami Gardens, the full Senate approved their congressional plan by a vote of 31 to 4, with only a handful of Democrats dissenting.

The state House’s two proposed maps, meanwhile, are more partisan: They have efficiency gaps of R+10 and R+13, and the median seat of both maps is 5 points more Republican-leaning than the state as a whole. These maps would create 15 Republican-leaning seats, eight or nine Democratic-leaning seats and four or five highly competitive seats.

DeSantis’s map is the most aggressive of the three, creating 17 Republican-leaning, eight Democratic-leaning and three highly competitive seats. Unlike the state House and Senate maps, this map halves the number of predominantly Black congressional districts and effectively eliminates the 5th District, a Voting Rights Act-protected district that is almost 50 percent Black. For this reason, DeSantis’s map faces heavy opposition from Democrats, and some have questioned whether this was more of a political ploy than a serious redistricting proposal.

Clearly, Florida Republicans have some genuine disagreements over how aggressively to draw the lines — or what they can get away with in front of the Florida Supreme Court. Which vision wins out could have national implications, as the partisan lean of several congressional districts hangs in the balance.
