PBPost: Negron, Abruzzo, Clemens seats could change in FL Senate redistricting

Opponents of the current Senate map — the League of Women Voters and its allies — dinged the district of Sen. Joe Negron, a Stuart Republican and the rival of Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, for the Senate presidency following the 2016 elections.

They said Negron’s District 32 was drawn to favor him and the Republican Party, in part by splitting counties and in part by drawing the district further north than it needed to be, with District 25 picking up a strip of land between Negron’s seat and District 27.

District 25 is represented by Sen. Joseph Abruzzo, D-Boynton Beach, while District 27 is represented by Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth.
