I was wondering about minority districts in Florida and what the rules are -
There are two African American majority districts, both in Miami. One, near downtown Miami is doable, but the other requires a crazy gerrymander screwing up all of Southeast Florida. Is there some kind of clause in the VRA that says this kind of district is not required?
Corrine Brown's district is 49% black. I don't know if it's considered black majority or what -- but it also requires a crazy gerrymander through North-Central Florida. Whether you bring the district down to Orlando or over to Tallahassee, a 51% black district is nearly impossible. Can this one be eliminated too?
All I can say is - the Republicans did a really good job with Florida.
