(TargetLiberty.org) – Florida is one of the states that has experienced a population boom in recent years. Between April 2020 and April 2021, roughly 330,000 people moved to the Sunshine State. Governor Ron DeSantis (R) recently said the GOP is growing right along with them.
On May 26, DeSantis participated in a Fox News town hall event. He talked about the influx of new residents in his state and said many of them are registering as Republicans. The governor also said that he has run into a lot of people who were Democrats at the beginning of the pandemic, but the lockdowns have since given them a reason to switch parties.
During my visit to @NickFilet, Nick told me his story about deciding to move his business to Florida.
On opening day, they sold out and exceeded their best day of sales by 33%! Florida is open, and a great place to run a business. pic.twitter.com/fjGO66f9kW

The Florida governor was often criticized during the early days of the pandemic for allegedly not doing enough to keep people safe in his state. He focused on making sure the economy was doing well by not shutting everything down. Months later, his state is doing well compared to some of the states run by Democrats; and the death rate in the state didn’t explode as Leftists predicted. It’s easy to see why there’s a growing political shift when the governor has such a good track record.
