    Florida: Gov. Ron DeSantis; Marco Rubio Wins Re-election

    Ron DeSantis won a second term as Florida’s governor in a rout on Tuesday, according to The Associated Press, cementing Republicans’ grip on power in a state that was once a premier battleground and his own reputation as a top contender for the presidency.

    Mr. DeSantis became governor four years ago in a contest so narrowly decided, by a mere 32,463 votes, that it required a recount. This time, he clobbered Charlie Crist, a Democratic former representative and governor with wide name recognition in the state. The Associated Press called the race right after the polls closed, a rarity in recent election cycles in Florida, a swing state that has shifted to the right.

    Republican Sen. Marco Rubio defeated Democratic challenger Val Demings, the AP has projected, as voters elected to return him to Washington for a third term. Mr. Rubio had been favored to win, but the race had been considered competitive.

    Florida voters have increasingly voted for Republican representation in recent years. Republican former President Donald Trump won the state in 2016 and by an even wider margin in 2020.
