Meanwhile, a June deadline for candidates to qualify for Congress looms.
Gov. Ron DeSantis vetoed a congressional map almost as soon as the bill hit his desk, and has now called for a Special Session.
“We have a responsibility to produce maps for our citizens that do not contain unconstitutional racial gerrymanders,” DeSantis said. “Today, I vetoed a map that violates the U.S. Constitution, but that does not absolve the Legislature from doing its job. I appreciate the Legislature’s willingness to work with me to pass a legally compliant map.”
