Mark Earley and Lori Edwards say they need to see a map well before qualification week
Election supervisors say Florida already passed the point of “ample time” to implement a congressional map. One wants cartography locked before April 29, within a week of the scheduled close of a Special Session on reapportionment.
Courts should give the Republican-controlled Florida Legislature and Gov. Ron DeSantis one more shot at producing a map, say plaintiffs in a federal case. But judges should be prepared to impose a map of their own choosing before the end of the month if elected officials can’t get their act together.
