Summary

Ron DeSantis had a historic win in the US congressional elections, leading Republicans to victory in Florida. He was praised for rejecting lockdowns, vaccine requirements and mask mandates in the name of personal freedoms. He outperformed Trump's 2020 figures with key groups, such as Latinos, women and even slightly with black voters, allowing him to flip counties that traditionally favour Democrats. He was the first Republican governor since 2002 to win the state's most populous and heavily Hispanic county. His success has put him on a direct collision course with former president and Florida resident, Donald Trump.
