It is currently represented by Democrat Val Demings. Due to redistricting after the 2010 census, this district was re-numbered, and slightly reconfigured from the former 8th District. Prior to 2017, it was considered a swing district, albeit slightly Republican-leaning. Due to mid-decade redistricting that occurred in 2016, the seat is considered solidly Democratic. — https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florida%27s_10th_congressional_district
