In a new interview, Gov. Ron DeSantis made it clear that Florida is firmly rooted in Republican ideals, highlighting the strong presence of conservative values within the state.

During an interview on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, DeSantis revealed that the state is on the verge of surpassing Democrats in voter registration by nearly 900,000.

“Florida is off the board. It is a Republican state. You’ve covered politics. We used to be a one-point state, every election hung on how would Florida go, that is not true anymore. And I think that’s a good thing for the party,” DeSantis told Bartiromo.

“I do think that migration has skewed amongst people who come to Florida not because they want to change the policies to reflect in Illinois or California or New York, but because they appreciate how Florida has done it differently from where they’re coming,” he continued.

According to DeSantis, the change in voter registration can be attributed to both current residents of the state changing their party affiliations and new arrivals to the state.

Bartiromo also pressed DeSantis about the Biden administration’s immigration policies and how they are affecting Florida.

Bartiromo went on to inquire about DeSantis’ future presidential aspirations, specifically in 2028.

“I don’t have any plans for the future.” said in response.

“I think we’re focused a lot on all the great things we’re doing in Florida. I am very, very confident that Florida is going to be a strong performance for Republicans up and down the ticket and we’ve worked very hard to bring it to this point. And I’m excited about that,” he continued.
