From The Tampa Tribune: “For the last 20 years, voters have elected principled Republicans to serve in the Florida Senate, and I am confident that voters will continue to support strong Republican candidates,” the Stuart Republican Joe Negron, State Senate President-elect,  said in a statement.

David King, the attorney who represented the League of Women Voters and other voting rights groups that drew up the approved map, called the judge’s ruling a “huge accomplishment for the citizens of Florida.”

“They will be able to cast a vote on constitutional maps for the congressional election and the state senate elections,” King said.
