Tampa Democratic Rep. Fentrice Driskell will relocate to the new House District 67 to seek re-election, following much of her constituency east to the new seat.
“New Tampa and its surrounding communities have been a strong base. You have to take all factors into account,” Driskell said.
The new state House map put Driskell’s current home in new House District 66, which she shared with Republican Rep. Traci Koster. That means by changing seats, Driskell will avoid a race against a fellow member of the House.
The move also shifts her from a Republican-leaning seat to a safe Democratic one.
