Ron DeSantis and Florida Legislative Session
Republican voters had a rough night on Tuesday, with tactics that paid off for Republicans in 2021 didn't have the same impact. Donald Trump immediately branded them as defeats for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, declaring his "magic is gone," after endorsing both Craft and defeated Jacksonville mayoral candidate Daniel Davis. For once, Democrats agreed with Trump, but in Jacksonville, where Davis out-spent Deegan better than 3-1, their candidate promised to "put more [police] officers on the streets" and reminded voters that crime had surged under Republican Mayor Lenny Curry.
