Fla. Congressional Districts to be redrawn…..

The eight districts affected are:  Corrine Brown; Kathy Castor; Ted Deutch; Lois Frankel; David Jolly; Carlos Curbelo; Mario Diaz-Balart; and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. The biggest effects will be felt north of I-4 in Orlando because Corrine Brown has that snaking district that goes from Jacksonville to Orlando.  My guess is, a more compact district will be formed around Jacksonville and the folks in Orlando will divide up her old areas.  But we will have to wait and see was the legislature comes up with.
