Republicans Score Major Upsets in Florida

Trump has dubbed the Republican results in the House and Senate a "success".

DeSantis, whose endorsement from President Trump boosted his nomination for the Republican party, pledged during his campaign to keep taxes low in Florida, and improve the coastline through beach restoration and flood mitigation.

The Florida race in particular appeared to be coming down to the wire.

Ron DeSantis has won the race for the governorship of Florida, defeating his Democratic opponent, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. Although the majority of white voters supported DeSantis, about 40 percent say they voted for Gillum.

Gillum was favored by polls to win the state, thanks to his strong support from the African American community and young people.

Both candidates have seen their share of controversy.

Gillum portrayed DeSantis as racially divisive, repeatedly pointing out his "monkey this up" comment and noting that a major DeSantis contributor called former President Barack Obama the N-word on Twitter and DeSantis refused to return his money. He signed the Dream Defenders' "Freedom Pledge", which states support for the group's broader agenda - but Gillum's campaign said the candidate was only expressing support for a pledge not to accept campaign contributions from private prison companies. There have also been complaints of malfunctioning voting machines. "Let the chips fall where they may". "We recognize that we didn't win this tonight".

Thirty-nine percent of Floridians registered to vote did so early, either in person or by mail, according to state election figures.

Kemp, Abrams' Republican rival, has been accused of trying to suppress the vote in his current role as Georgia's secretary of state in charge of overseeing the election.

Republicans also scored a major victory in OH, where Mike DeWine, the state attorney general, defeated Democrat Richard Cordray, who served as the first director of the US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Basically it's a swing state in a relatively Democratic year with a Democratic incumbent - it all looked like a real advantage for Nelson.

Voters in Florida have a rare clear choice between a rock-solid conservative and a democratic socialist for governor.

But the Democrats were trailing in redder areas of the state.

DeSantis' victory continues the drought for Democrats seeking Florida's highest office that started in 1998 when Bush defeated Buddy MacKay, who had been Lawton Chiles' lieutenant governor. The margin is too slim for an official result, and may lead to a recount.

Gillum paused to speak with reporters after casting his vote from himself in Florida's closely watched gubernatorial race.

That was the largest difference in the number of voters who cast ballots for governor but chose not to pick a Senate candidate across all 67 of Florida's counties.
