4. This is a significant development. Florida's Congressional Delegation currently has

 

17 Republicans and 9 Democrats.

If you are thinking there is a problem with that when Florida is a Swing state that is often split pretty closely down the middle in voting, you are not alone.

This by itself won't make the House winnable again for Democrats, but if it was made even at 13 Republicans and 13 Democrats, that is a swing of eight seats. We would still have 50 or so seats to go to break even in the House.
