NEW YORK (AP) - New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will campaign in Florida this week in support of two state redistricting amendments.

Bloomberg is scheduled to appear Friday in Miami with former Mayor Manny Diaz. He'll urge support of two proposed amendments on the ballot next month.

Amendment 5 deals with legislative districts and Amendment 6 addresses U.S. congressional districts.

Both require a 60 percent majority to pass.

The billionaire Republican-turned-independent has long supported redistricting in New York.
