There are now more registered Republicans than Democrats in Florida for the first time under Governor Ron DeSantis (R).
“When I got elected governor we had 280,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans in the state of Florida,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said at the National Conference of State Legislatures on Friday. “Today, and it will probably be fully publicized very soon, for the first time in the history of Florida we have overtaken Democrats. There are more registered Republicans in Florida than Democrats.”
DeSantis then joked about the New Jersey gubernatorial race, saying that the Republican candidate would have won that race if all their Republicans hadn’t moved to Florida.
“Once these areas go deep blue they get destroyed,” DeSantis said. “How many places that are deep blue are well governed in this country? Can you name me some?”
