DeSantis, Trump’s Republican rival, sweeps and reaffirms Florida as a conservative state

One of the most resounding and relevant results of the mid-term elections in the United States, the midterms, was that of the resounding victory won by Donald Trump’s possible rival in some still hypothetical Republican primaries for the 2024 presidential elections, the Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

The ultra-conservative that the former Republican president feared the most was re-elected as the highest state authority in the southern state with almost 60% of the vote compared to 40% won by Democrat Michael Crist.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio, backed by Trump, also won the victory by a comfortable margin of 17 points (58% to 41%) over his competitor, Democrat Val Demings.

The double triumph of the two Republican meanings comes to consolidate Florida as a clearly conservative state after successive calls with much tighter results in the territory

In the 2020 presidential elections, Trump won Joe Biden there by just over four points. DeSantis himself entered office four years ago with a less than one-point lead over Democrat Andrew Gillum.
