With over 90 percent reporting, Ron DeSantis is not … messing… this up. The controversial, Trumpite Florida gubernatorial candidate has made the race for the Sunshine State a real fight.

Nearly two hours in, the election remains extremely unclear. But the Republican is up in the Governor’s race, which is something of a surprise.

And if Rick Scott were to steal a Senate senate for the Grand Old Party, and Congressman DeSantis were to replace him in Tallahassee, it could be a harbinger for a shock night of upset for the GOP.

Florida was the true beginning of the crescendo for the Republicans in 2016. Florida went – then the Blue Wall: Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

DeSantis had the biggest foot-in-mouth moment of the 2018 campaign – the ‘monkey this up’ brouhaha – but has recovered for a shock upset? Too close to call. But if so, it could portend conservative damage control across the board.
