Believe it or not, Republican Ron DeSantis owes his victory in the Florida gubernatorial election to about 100,000 African-American women who unexpectedly chose him over the black Democratic candidate, Andrew Gillum.

Of the roughly 650,000 black women who voted in Florida, 18% chose Mr. DeSantis, according to CNN’s exit poll of 3,108 voters. This exceeded their support for GOP U.S. Senate candidate Rick Scott (9%), Mr. DeSantis’s performance among black men (8%) and the GOP’s national average among black women (7%). Link

This was enough to put DeSantis over the top.

Why did more black women vote for DeSantis? The answer is School Choice.

This is a good thing for blacks. By voting for one side all the time no matter what they have rendered themselves irrelevant. How else did Gillum think that he could accept the support of teacher's unions in the face of all those black kids being forced to attend those rotten public schools? How else could the government go from year to year without doing something about those schools? If blacks show that they can switch sides then their concerns will be taken more seriously.

Its good to see them finally see that the Republicans will look out for them and not screw them over like the Democrats have.This is why Trump will win in a landslide in 2020.

Wait a second. I thought GOP'ers wanted to suppress the black vote down there in Florida? You mean, the damned leftists lied?

It makes you wonder, if congress had a comprehensive school choice bill in their back pocket and presented it in September and held a vote, if the GOP would’ve kept congress.

If they brought it up in the senate, it would definitly hurt the democrat position irreparably in 2020

It’s certainly a good hill to die on, because there’s loads of people suffering in public school districts where they can’t even fire pedophile teachers, and the democrats are a wholly owned subsidiary of the teachers unions.

I think a concerted campaign for school choice, targeting the poor and minority voters would be highly successful, and the truth is, Republicans never have to win a majority of blacks and Latinos, the 18% and 44% respectively won by De Santis guarantees victory in all swing states

But aside from politics, I’m sure many Latinos who are poor would love to send their kids to catholic school which are very good quality schools, and black parents would love to send their kids to schools that are safe and can better accommodate their children, it’s fundamentally an issue of right and wrong, that parents and not the state have the final say on how their kids receive education

Florida has 67 counties. Only one, Gadsden County... about 30 miles west of Tallahassee, has Majority Black. Florida has a long and sordid history of Black/White racism. Brooksville in Hernando County took its name from Preston Brooks, a famous pre-Civil War segregationist.

Factor in the Big Government Local and State Money raked in by the Charter School industry, it comes as no surprise that some Black Mothers would use that issue to decide who to vote for. Add that to the natural appeal of Desantis to the racist undertone of Florida... and Florida elected Desantis governor.

Congratulations to those of you who voted for and/or supported Desantis!

I don’t care if Mr Colon has a college degree. I’m not chasing that thread to the end.

On top of all that, the usual trope of leftists that people who don’t agree with them are racists is such a lame argument.

Apparently that race-baiting bull**** over his "monkey this up" comment failed.

Democrats only care about minorities when it's election time. Afterwards, they screw them like they do everyone else.

Before election: "Vote for us Democrats, Minorities! We like you and the GOP hates you! We'll make sure you're taken care of!"
After election: "Thanks for voting us, Minorities! Now prepare for us to screw you over cuz we can!"
