The Florida Senate approved a new redistricting map by a 22-18 vote. However, during the process Sen. Matt Gaetz (R-Niceville) called Sen. Jack Latvala (R-Clearwater) a bully for remarks he made about previous attempts at redistricting. Sen. Latvala said that Sen. Gaetz oversaw the map that was challenged in court and owed the state of Florida an apology.
