Florida Governor Ron DeSantis won big in Florida and is the biggest winner of the midterm election. He won a landslide victory over Democratic nominee Charlie Crist. Ronald Dion DeSantis is born in 1978 and became the 46th governor of Florida in 2019, elected in 2018, and re-elected in 2022.
DeSantis’s win in Florida was one for the record books. In Miami-Dade County, DeSantis won easily. A region President Joe Biden won by 16% in 2020. DeSantis is popular and won because he embraced Trumpian policies, stood firm against the woke mob, and led his state through the pandemic with brilliance.
DeSantis is a right-wing politician. A republican. The new Trump. During the COVID-19 pandemic in Florida, DeSantis resisted imposing restrictions including face mask mandates, stay-at-home orders, and vaccination requirements. In May 2021, he signed into law a bill that prohibited businesses, schools, cruise ships, and government entities from requiring proof of vaccination.
In his victory speech, he said they chose facts over fear. Education over indoctrination. Law and order over rioting and disorder. «Florida was a refuge of sanity when the world went mad. We stood as a citadel of freedom for people across this country and indeed the world,» he said.
«States and cities governed by leftist politicians have seen crime skyrocket. they`ve seen their taxpayers abused, they`ve seen medical authoritarianism imposed, and they`ve seen American principles discarded. The woke agenda has caused millions of Americans to leave these jurisdictions for greener pastures,» DeSantis said in his speech.
«Now, this great exodus of Americans, for those folks, Florida, for so many of them, has served as the promised land. We have embraced freedom. We have maintained law and order. We have protected the rights of parents. We have respected our taxpayers, and we reject woke ideology.»
«We fight the woke in the legislature. We fight the woke in the schools. We fight the woke in the corporations. We will never, ever surrender to the woke mob. Florida is where the woke goes to die. People have come here because our policies work. Leadership matters.»
«Now, while our country flounders due to failed leadership in Washington, Florida is on the right track. I believe the survival of the American experiment requires a revival of true American principles. Florida has proved that it can be done. We offer a ray of hope that better days still lie ahead,» DeSantis said in his historic victory speech.
Conservative commentator Liz Peek declared DeSantis «the new leader of the Republican Party.» Fox News dubbed it «A NEW ERA.»
«There`s little doubt that his Florida success will grab the attention of voters outside the Sunshine state,» the editorial board wrote. «You can bet Donald Trump was watching – unhappily.»
