DeSantis On GOP’s Lackluster Midterm Performance

  • “We focused on results and leadership. And, you know, at the end of the day, I would just tell people to go check out the scoreboard from last Tuesday night,” DeSantis said.
  • “The fact of the matter is, it was the greatest Republican victory in the history of the state of Florida. And it wasn’t just the best governor victory, of course it was that, but we swept in super majorities in the Florida Legislature.”
  • “We have 85 Republicans out of 120 in our state house, we’ve never had that many before,” he continued. “We have 28 senators out of 40 that are Republicans, never had that many. … We had 16 Republican members of the U.S. House from Florida, now we have 20 going up there. So that’s four, four seats right there. So at the end of the day, I think people respond to the leadership, they respond to the results.”
