( – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) declared on Sunday that his state was a red state while emphasizing how conservative values appeared to dominate within its borders. 

DeSantis, during an interview on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, argued that the state had almost 900 thousand more registered Republicans instead of Democrats. He added that Florida is a “Republican state” and that previously Florida used to be a battleground state that could alter how elections would go, but that this was not the case anymore. He continued by arguing that he considered this to be something positive for the GOP.

DeSantis argued that the change in voter registration is both by individuals who are already living in Florida and have switched parties as well as by new residents who have moved to Florida. 

He added that migration has changed the landscape as many people are moving to Florida because they can appreciate how the state is doing things differently compared to New York, California, or the other states they might be coming from. 

Bartiromo also questioned how the Biden administration’s immigration policies have affected the state. In response, the governor noted that they have had examples of people who have been repeatedly deported and have managed to enter back into the country because of the Biden administration’s policies. 

Bartiromo also asked whether DeSantis was planning to run again for the White House in 2028, to which the Florida governor argued that he currently does not have any plans.
