Statement by U.S. Rep. Al Lawson on DeSantis’ Latest Congressional Map Proposal

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Al Lawson (FL-05) issued the following statement about Ron DeSantis’ recent Congressional Map Proposal. 

“Today’s revelation is a continued scheme by DeSantis to erase minority access districts in Congress in order to create more seats for the Republican party.

“DeSantis is doing a disservice to Florida voters by playing partisan politics. This latest map clearly violates the Voting Rights Act as well as the U.S. and Florida Constitutions.”
