Few states in the union are turning bright red as quickly as Florida.
Registered Republicans now outnumber Democrats by more than 100,000 which gives Republican candidates a significant advantage.
It certainly doesn’t hurt that Florida has a strong Republican governor like Ron DeSantis.
FOX News reports:
Florida’s registered Republican voters outnumber Democrats by over 100K for first time
A red wave is brewing in Florida as registered Republican voters now outnumber Democrats by over 100,000 for the first time in the state’s history, according to data obtained by Fox News Digital.
At the end of 2021, Florida GOP’s voter registration numbers officially overtook the state Democratic Party, giving Republicans the lead in a state steadily shifting red.
Now, Republicans in Florida outnumber Democrats for the first time by over 100,000 voters, in both new registrants and party switches, according to internal numbers from Gov. Ron DeSantis’ re-election campaign exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital.
A spokesperson for DeSantis’ campaign told Fox News Digital that the surge in Republican voters broke 101,000 as of Tuesday morning.
“There’s no beating around the fact this historic gain is because of Governor Ron DeSantis,” Florida Republican Party executive director Helen Aguirre Ferré said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “Florida voters are appreciative of the palpable sense of freedom he has created in our state.”
“Unemployment is lower than the national average, our schools are open, there are no lockdowns, and there are no masks. Voters recognize the governor is a champion for families and businesses alike,” Aguirre Ferré continued. “Our voter registration numbers are impressive, but a 363,000 net change? That is unprecedented.”
Is it safe to call Florida a red state now?
DeSantis pointed out that the Republicans had 300,000 fewer voters in 2018 when he was elected to lead, but now, ‘Florida Republicans now outnumber Democrats by over 100,000 registrants.’https://t.co/e2GeMWcmlC
