FOLLOWING IS SEN. BILL NELSON’S COMMENT ON COURT
ORDERING LEGISLATURE TO DRAW NEW MAPS

Eds., reporters note:  U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) has been asked to comment on a Florida judge ordering the state Legislature to draw new congressional district maps.  Here’s what he had to say:

“The way I see it, the court ruled in favor of Florida voters,” said U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL).  “But, unfortunately, I expect the state might try to appeal to delay having to carry out the court’s directive before the election.”
