  •  The big action will be in state seats (1+ / 0-)

    the Florida legislature is the most Republican gerrymandered one in the entire country. The GOP holds seats there more in line with a state like Kansas than a 50/50 state. Long term loses that many local seats will finally start to erode their better state level organization.

    Having that many local seats, gives local organizers paid job options working for state offices year round, and having that many incumbents helps them build better voter list. Having this advantage eroded will help long term.  

    -1.63/ -1.49 "Speaking truth to power" (with snark of course)!
