The extent of the 2022 red wave (or red trickle) remains to be seen, but one thing is clear: It’s a tsunami in the Sunshine State. 

On Tuesday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis defeated his Democratic opponent, Charlie Crist, by a nearly 60-40 margin. It was a drubbing of epic proportions, with the race called early and the mainstream media already proclaiming DeSantis the “2024 Republican front-runner.” Of course, left-wing news headlines should be taken with a grain of salt, with the DeSantis-bashing set to ensue in the weeks to come, but Democrats are worried — and for good reason. 

The sheer extent of the Florida drubbing is historic. DeSantis has turned a swing state into a deep red one. He easily won traditionally reliable Democratic voting blocs, beating Crist by five points among even non-Cuban Hispanic voters. Among Cubans, DeSantis beat Crist by a whopping 37 points. Perhaps the most stunning result came in once-reliably-blue Miami-Dade County, which broke for DeSantis by a nearly 12-point margin. The popularity of Florida’s freedom-loving governor benefited Republicans up and down the ballot, with Republican Sen. Marco Rubio also winning Miami-Dade and other traditionally blue counties.
