Trump Wins Florida, Now We Wait…

There is no winner yet in the presidential race. President Trump has won in battleground states including Ohio, Florida, and Texas, but Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania are too close to call. In addition, ballots in North Carolina and Georgia are still being counted. Biden picked up a key win by flipping Arizona and addressed a drive-in rally in Delaware stressing that the election won’t be over until all ballots have been counted. Trump is also sounding upbeat, tweeting overnight that he is “up BIG” and later speaking from the White accusing his opponents of trying to steal the election. The House Democrats lost seats but still maintain an advantage so Nancy Pelosi remains in charge as Speaker and Mitch McConnell will either be the Majority or Minority leader of the Senate pending the outcome of some Senate races. In Florida, the incumbents held on to their seats. Congressmen Alcee Hastings, Brian Mast, Ted Deutch, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Lois Frankel were all re-elected by South Florida voters. Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw wins as does Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony. Voter turnout was huge, so big that a precinct in Orlando is reporting a 105-percent turnout. That means every registered voter cast a ballot and then some. Supervisor of Elections Wendy Sartore Link says more than 75% of voters in Palm Beach County participated in the election. Original Story: President Trump has won the coveted battleground state of Florida and claims its 29 electoral votes, according to Governor Ron DeSantis. Trump beat Biden handily in Florida with 51 to 47% of the vote. Trump had a strong showing in South Florida especially with Hispanic and black voters…an interesting development given that the left labels the president a “racist.” Tonight, following the closing of polls across all 67 counties, Governor Ron DeSantis announced that President Donald J. Trump has secured enough votes to win the state of Florida and that Republicans will retain control of both chambers of the Florida Legislature. “I am proud to announce that Florida has once again delivered for President Donald J. Trump and that Florida Republicans will retain control of both chambers of the Florida Legislature,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. In a statement DeSantis proclaimed, “Tonight’s results are the culmination of our efforts to drive historic Republican voter registration, mobilize a grassroots get out the vote initiative, and raise more than $20 million to support President Trump’s campaign, as well as congressional, legislative and down ballot races. To all Republican voters who showed up and voted in record numbers: Thank you for performing your civic duty and doing your part to help President Trump secure four more years in the White House.” Democrats will retain control of the House of Representatives and expand their majority by gaining five seats. Results are in for U.S. Senate races in states where the polls have closed. NBC News projects that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has been declared the winner in his race for re-election against Democratic challenger Amy McGrath. So far it is unclear whether McConnell will be the Senate majority or minority leader.

Joe Biden says he doesn’t want to make any predictions about tonight. This is Biden’s third bid for the presidency. During a stop in Pennsylvania he again hammered his message — elect him and he’ll be an American president, no red or blue states, just the United States.
