Florida GOP Celebrates Republican Turnout, Including a Flip, in Duval County: ‘We Out-Hustled and Outperformed’

The Florida Republican Party celebrated Tuesday night after a positive turnout in the local elections, as well as the flipping of a Republican senator, in Duval County — which voted for President Biden in 2020 — after President Christian Ziegler committed to participating in local races.

“We flipped Duvall into 2022 and tonight we outperformed and outperformed the Democrats in the same county,” Ziegler said in a statement.

“Democratic desperation and Republican momentum continue in Duvall, but we’re not done yet. The GOP is looking forward to the office ending in May.”

During the evening, Ziegler and others highlighted turnout—that is, the trend of Republicans turning out far more than Democrats, even though Democrats enjoyed more than 28,000 voters in Duval, home to Jacksonville, Fla.:

Throughout the night, the Duval County GOP congratulated many Republicans on their victories, including the re-election of several Jacksonville Republican City Council members. As they celebrated Councilman-elect Ken Amaro flips Jacksonville City Council District 1 red:

Meanwhile, the Jacksonville mayoral race heads into the general election with neither Democrat Donna DeGian nor Republican Daniel Davis receiving more than 50 percent of the vote.

“Congratulations to Daniel Davis on securing the Republican nomination for Mayor of Jacksonville!” The Duval County Republican Party said.

She added, “A minimalist conservative state committed to public safety, Daniel would be the obvious choice over an avowed liberal from Biden/Donna Deegan’s Gillum,” and criticized Deegan for being “soft on crime” and wanting “higher taxes”:

Focus on local elections is part of Florida Republican Party Handbook under the leadership of Ziegler.

“We’re going to expand and we’re going to go after these local races,” he said during his appearance. Breitbart News Saturdayhighlighting the need for participation at the school board level, district committee level, and city committee level.

Ziegler noted that these domestic issues, including awakened left-wing indoctrination in schools, have galvanized individuals—even those who don’t ordinarily make it to the polls:

“Look, he won 30,000 votes [in 2018]. Just 30,000 of the millions of votes cast and since he took office there have been a million new people who have moved here and registered to vote. Of that million, about 500,000…are registered as Republicans. Only 17,000 registered as Democrats, which is insane. So we see independents rise in our state as they leave the Democratic Party [and] becoming Republican or Independent,” noting that the net increase for Republicans is significant, but added that the calculations show that the governor and his policies win over non-Republicans as well.

That net increase of about 500,000 for the Republicans, you know, that’s great, but Governor DeSantis actually won 1.5 million votes. So if you get 500 votes, there’s still a million votes that don’t count, and you can’t attribute it to the Republicans moving to Florida A lot of them are obviously independents who moved here, but a good portion of them are newly energized voters who are energized on these cultural issues, energized because their kids were indoctrinated or indoctrination pushed their kids. It focuses on children and gender ideology as drivers of mass mobilization.

“So all of these issues have been mobilized,” Ziegler added, explaining Tuesday that the Florida GOP is committed to local races.
