DeSantis says people who are moving to Florida are “overwhelmingly” registering as Republicans

Appearing on Fox News, Florida Governor Ron DeSnatis said people who are moving to Florida are “overwhelmingly” registering as Republicans.

“The media at the beginning of this said Florida’s bad and I think it’s because they want to damage Trump in Florida, they want to damage me,” DeSantis said. “So, they just kept saying it was bad and even though the facts didn’t say it, like literally last April, they’re saying Florida is doing worse than New York. New York was like 10 times worse.”

“And so, I think what it did is the people that buy those phony narratives for these media, they probably aren’t coming to Florida. But most people see through it. But the people that see through it, they think like us. And so, I think a lot of these people are coming. I think they are registering as Republicans overwhelming,” he continued. “And I also have come across a lot of people who, quite frankly, were Democrats. The lockdowns turned them into Republicans.”

DeSantis also said “If you have a political party that puts the interests of teachers unions over the interests of kids just being able to access an education at all, that tells you all you need to know about the modern Democratic Party.
