Democrats just got some more bad news as they head into the 2022 midterms and 2024 presidential elections.
The Republican Party has now taken the edge and made Florida officially a red state, which could have devastating consequences for Democrats, Tampa Bay Times reported.
“This is a milestone moment in Florida’s history,” said Helen Aguirre Ferré, executive director of the Republican Party of Florida.
The state of Florida has long been considered to be a battleground state for elections.
But in recent years, the state has not only gotten more conservative, but it also appears that Republicans are growing stronger in the Sunshine State.
Voter registration data shows that there are 5,142,002 registered Republicans in the state of Florida in 2022.
By comparison, there are 5,007,590 Democrats registered in the state.
This means that there are now 134,412 more registered Republicans in the state than Democrats.
