NEW YORK (FLV) – New York Gov. Kathy Hochul told some Republicans to leave the state for Florida at a campaign event last week.

“And we’re here to say that the era of Trump and Zeldin and Molinaro – just jump on a bus and head down to Florida where you belong, OK?” Hochul said.

Hochul was campaigning for Democrat congressional candidate Pat Ryan. Pat Ryan ended up beating Republican Marc Molinaro in Tuesday’s special election for New York’s 19th Congressional District.

U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin represents New York’s 1st Congressional District and is the Republican candidate for governor.

“Get out of town. Get out of town. Because you don’t represent our values,” Hochul continued. “You are not New Yorkers.”

People from New York have already been flocking to Florida. Reports have shown Miami locals are facing extraordinarily high rent prices after people fled New York because of the lower taxes and business-friendly environment.

In 2020, the migration from high tax states to low tax states surged during pandemic lockdowns. Below is the breakdown of the migration of taxpayers and aggregate adjusted gross income between states in 2020:

Between July 2020 and July 2021, New York’s population decreased by 319,020 as Florida’s population increased by 211,196. The DeSantis campaign even launched mugs for New Yorkers that said, “I’m a New Yorker but I wish my Governor was Ron DeSantis.”
