Democrats have taken yet another shot across the bow in terms of new congressional maps.
The latest being an appeals court putting the map drawn by Governor Ron DeSantis in Florida.
On Friday, the 1st District Court of Appeal overturned the lower court ruling, and DeSantis’ map is back in play.
In overturning the previous decision, the court ruled, “Given the exigency of the circumstances and the need for certainty and continuity as election season approaches, on the court’s own motion, the stay of the temporary injunction is reinstated pending the court’s disposition of the motion for review of the trial court’s vacatur of the automatic stay, which will be promptly forthcoming.”
The final ruling has not been made, but it does appear as though the court is going to call the previous decision unlawful.
The appeals court wrote, “The court has determined there is a high likelihood that the temporary injunction is unlawful, because by awarding a preliminary remedy to the appellees’ on their claim, the order ‘frustrated the status quo, rather than preserved it.'”
In the last week, Democrats have lost congressional districting battles in New York, Kansas, and now Florida.
Somehow, Republicans have managed to rally and defeat the blatant gerrymandering by Democrats and have now completely turned the tables.
