Florida midterm elections result: Trump hails VICTORY as Governor Ron DeSantis wins

All Eyes on Florida's Gubernatorial Race: Will Florida Go Blue? Andrew Gillum vs. Ron DeSantis: LIVE Florida gubernatorial election results
Leonard Rios | 08 November, 2018, 10:04

Florida's term-limited governor won a narrow victory for a U.S. Senate seat, flipping yet another seat to the GOP.

Democrat Andrew Gillum lost his bid to become Florida's first black governor, suffering a razor-thin defeat to Republican Ron DeSantis in a racially charged contest that drew national attention.

Republicans also scored a major victory in Ohio's governor race, where Mike DeWine, the state attorney general, defeated Democrat Richard Cordray, who served as the first director of the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Miller chose to vote on Election Day, when she said she could see the races on that ballot.

Now, with DeSantis' election, that conservative Republican influence will extend to the Florida Supreme Court, which has a 4-3 liberal majority that has blocked many initiatives advanced by the Republican-led Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott.

Trump has dubbed the Republican results in the House and Senate a "success". And while Republicans swept Florida's statewide races, Democrats again crept closer to winning, and may get a boost going forward from a new constitutional amendment that will restore felons' voting rights.

Democrats viewed the governor's race in Wisconsin, where Republican Scott Walker was seeking a third term, as winnable. Despite implications that DeSantis was racially insensitive - an idea he angrily disputed during a debate - he was able to win the state that Trump carried in 2016.

Going into Election Day, the math favored Democrats: Nearly 23,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans had voted statewide, out of 5.2 million ballots cast early.

Tuesday's results could help Trump when he seeks re-election in 2020, with DeSantis and Scott in a better position to use their offices to sway opinions if they maintain support with Florida voters.

The gubernatorial race was a study in contrasts: a straight-talking, unapologetically progressive, black nominee running against a Tea Party figure who released a campaign ad in which his young children built Trump's fabled border wall out of toy bricks. Neither Georgia nor Florida has elected a Democratic governor in 20 years. Though Gillum had a slight edge in the polls leading up to Election Day, and support from high-profile Democrats like former President Barack Obama, Florida has not elected a Democratic governor since 1994. Youth votes, which went heavily for Gillum, soared, but not enough to overcome the elderly vote, which was dominated by DeSantis.

He also must appoint a host of state agency heads overseeing areas such as education, health care, transportation and prisons.
