TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – For the first time in Florida history, there are 200,000 more Republicans than Democrats registered to vote according to sources within the Republican Party of Florida. 

The number of registered Republican voters doubled since March when Republicans hit 100,000 more registrations. 

“Democrats are falling in line with Joe Biden’s policies that are making Americans’ lives harder and more expensive, but Governor DeSantis is standing in their way, making Florida the firewall for freedom,” DeSantis Campaign Spokesperson Lindsey Curnutte said.

Florida Republicans have been overtaking Democrats in voter registrations since Gov. Ron DeSantis took office. When Governor DeSantis was first elected in 2018, Republicans trailed Democrats by 300,000. 

“It’s no surprise Republican voter registrations are growing at this impressive rate,” Curnutte. “Simply put, we will prove Florida is a red state in November.” 

There are 1 million more people registered in Florida compared to four years ago.

The Florida Democrat Party has been losing steam as liberal donors pull out of state elections.

Democratic Ranking Member Rep. Michael Grieco, D-Miami Beach, announced he would not seek reelection citing a lack of resources from the “Tallahassee Establishment” as a main reason. 

Minority Leader Sen. Lauren Book, D-Broward County, has previously fundraised for other Democrats but now faces a heated contested race in her own district.

Republicans said the Democratic party is left without direction and a leader. At the same time, Governor DeSantis is continuing to rise in popularity and resonate his message with people across the country.

“It’s helpful when you have someone like him who can pierce through a little bit of that ridiculous slanted coverage that the media has and reach directly to the average Floridian and the average American,” State Rep. Joe Harding said.
