FloREDa: Sunshine state solidly swings to GOP on election night

Say goodbye to hanging chads and waiting weeks for results on election night from the great state of Florida. As Fox News adequately characterizes the “nation’s one-time premier swing state” is now a solid Red state.

Florida Republicans Senator Marco Rubio and Governor Ron DeSantis easily won their elections. “Most striking were the Republican victories in Miami-Dade County, a traditional Democratic stronghold in South Florida” writes The Hill.

The Hill explains the significance of the wins in detail:

Florida’s rightward trend has been years in the making. In 2016, for instance, then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton won Miami-Dade County by more than 29 percent of the vote. In 2020, President Biden carried it by just little more than 7 points.

Both years, former President Donald Trump carried the state overall.

Since then, things have only gotten more bleak for Democrats. About a year ago, Republicans surpassed Democrats in voting registrations for the first time in the state’s modern political history. That advantage has grown to more than 300,000.

At the same time, Florida saw itself stripped of several competitive congressional districts this year after the Republican-controlled state legislature approved a new political map pushed by DeSantis that created four new GOP-leaning seats.

Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar (R-Fla.) on Tuesday soundly defeated state Sen. Annette Taddeo in Florida’s Miami-based 27th District, the most competitive House district in the state. Democrats also lost in Florida’s 13th District, which was previously represented by Crist. That district was made less competitive for Democrats under the new congressional map.

Florida Democrats, meanwhile, have been roiled by internal disputes and fundraising woes for years. The state party found itself in a financial crisis two years ago that ultimately resulted in it allowing its employees’ health insurance lapse.

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
