Few states in the league have turned bright red as quickly as Florida.

Florida’s registered Republican voters surpass Democrats by 100,000 for the first time
A red wave is brewing in Florida as registered Republican voters now outnumber Democrats by 100,000 for the first time in state history, according to data obtained by Fox News Digital.
In late 2021, Florida Republicans officially surpassed the state’s Democrats in voter registration, giving Republicans a steady turn in the red in the state.
Now, Florida Republicans surpass 100,000 voters for the first time in new registrants and party switching, according to internal data from Gov. Ron DeSantis’ re-election campaign obtained exclusively by Fox News Digital .
A spokesman for the DeSantis campaign told Fox News Digital that the surge in Republican voters had topped 101,000 as of Tuesday morning.
“This historic gain is due to Governor Ron DeSantis,” Florida Republican executive director Helen Aguirre Ferré said in a statement to Fox News Digital. ), that fact is irrefutable.” “Florida voters appreciate the unmistakable sense of freedom he has created in our state.”
“Unemployment is below the national average, our schools are open, there are no lockdowns, and there are no masks. Voters recognize the governor as a champion for families and businesses,” continued Aguirre Ferré. “Our voter registration numbers are impressive, but a net change of 363,000? This is unprecedented.”
Is it safe to call Florida a red state now?
DeSantis noted that Republicans had 300,000 fewer voters when they were elected to leadership in 2018, but now, “Republicans in Florida now have more than 100,000 more registered people than Democrats.”https://t.co/e2GeMWcmlC
