Following a landslide victory in the Florida gubernatorial race, Ron DeSantis gave a victory speech where explained how he secured a second term as Florida’s Governor and what the political future of Florida is under his leadership.

DeSantis defeated Democrat challenger Charlie Crist with a monumental 19 point victory, a blowout by many people’s standards. 

The Daily Wire reported that “The speech comes after DeSantis stunned the nation, winning his re-election campaign by a projected 19.5 points, a margin that even DeSantis’ top allies did not see coming. The governor, who won a tight race in 2018 by approximately 30,000 votes, blew away opponent Charlie Crist by more than 1.5 million votes.”

Prior to midterms, the GOP expected a massive red wave, but as midterms have begun to conclude that expectation is realizing to be untrue. While Republicans are likely to control the House of Representatives, the Senate is still up in the air and favoring the Democrat party.

“DeSantis’ victory was widely considered to be the top story from this midterm election season as Republicans did not perform nearly as well as they thought they were going to, with several of former President Donald Trump’s endorsed candidates struggling or losing in tight races for key U.S. Senate or gubernatorial seats,” The Daily Wire report continued.

The Florida Governor’s speech was fiery and empowering as the prospective presidential candidate detailed what four more years of Ron DeSantis will look like.

“We made promises to the people of Florida and we have delivered on those promises. And so today, after four years, the people have delivered their verdict. Freedom is here to stay. Now, thanks to the overwhelming support of the people of Florida, we not only won election, we have rewritten the political map. Thank you for honoring us with a win for the ages.

“Now this great exodus of Americans, for those folks, Florida for so many of them, has served as the promised land. We have embraced freedom. We have maintained law and order. We have protected the rights of parents. We have respected our taxpayers and we reject woke ideology. We fight the woke in the legislature, we fight the woke in the schools, we fight the woke in the corporations, we will never ever surrender to the woke mob. Florida is where woke goes to die!

“People have come here because our policies work. Leadership matters. We refuse to use polls and put our finger in the wind. Leaders don’t follow, they lead. We set out a vision. We executed on that vision. And we produced historic results, and the people of this state have responded in record fashion. Now while our country flounders due to failed leadership in Washington, Florida is on the right track.

“I believe the survival of the American experiment requires a revival of true American principles. Florida has proved that it can be done. We offer a ray of hope that better days still lie ahead. I am proud of our achievements in this state. I am honored by your support, and I look forward to the road ahead. I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race in this first term. And I have kept the faith. We’ve accomplished more than anybody thought possible four years ago, but we’ve got so much more to do and I have only begun to fight.”
