“I will veto the congressional reapportionment plan currently being debated by the House. DOA,” DeSantis said on Twitter.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Gov. Ron DeSantis’ decision to insert himself into Florida’s redistricting process is sending shockwaves through the state’s final budget negotiations, leading House Republican leaders to punish their GOP rank-and-file members as the governor’s office lobbied them to vote against their own leadership.
Lawmakers on Friday sent maps to DeSantis he directly said he would veto, a move taken as the governor’s top staffers were reaching out to House Republicans to sway them to vote against the maps being considered because the governor has ill-defined “legal concern” over the proposals.
