TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Senate President-Designate Kathleen Passidomo celebrated Republicans taking a super majority in both the Florida House and Senate Tuesday.
“With the first Black Republican since Reconstruction, the first Green Beret and one of the youngest members ever elected, we will return to Tallahassee with a super majority and a renewed commitment to fighting for access to the American Dream for all Floridians,” Passidomo said.
A red tsunami consumed Florida on election night as Republicans unseated Democrats in historically Democrat-leaning areas. In some cases, the seats flipped by double digit margins.
“We have rewritten the political map. Thank you for honoring us with a win for the ages,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said during his victory speech.
Florida Republicans have 81 seats in the State House while Democrats have 34 seats. In the State Senate, Republicans control 28 seats while 12 are controlled by the Democrats.
Tonight, we celebrate the election of 28 new and returning conservative Republican Senators around the state, including historic victories with Corey Simon, Jay Collins and Alexis Calatayud. With the first Black Republican since Reconstruction, the first Green Beret and one of the youngest members ever elected, we will return to Tallahassee with a super majority and a renewed commitment to fighting for access to the American Dream for all Floridians.
These victories are a definitive win for parental rights, fiscal responsibility, access to world-class education opportunities for our students including school choice, protecting our children and the unborn, and ensuring government is never able to strip anyone of the dignity of work or their right to worship. Tonight is a monumental win in the fight to keep Florida Free!
Given the choice, hardworking families chose Florida values over the radical, socialist agenda that ridicules work, defames law enforcement, indoctrinates children, and cancels anyone who dares to challenge this backward vision for humanity.
Tonight’s outcome is not solely the result of superior organization, or resource and voter registration advantages. To be sure, those were vital to overcome the corporate media’s nearly universal alignment with our opponents and their agenda. Any narrative that blames money or voter registration, and even a natural disaster, is dismissing the outcry of Floridians who are fed up with being blamed for wanting to live their lives without fear of radical, socialist intervention.Senate President-Designate Kathleen Passidomo
