Florida’s DeSantis gives thanks where it’s due: Trump

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Former Republican U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis is putting his thanks squarely where it is due after winning Florida’s governor election: President Donald Trump.

DeSantis defeated Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum on Tuesday and thanked the president for his support. Trump backed DeSantis in the primary and helped him cruise to victory.

Then Trump rallied with DeSantis twice in the last six days before Tuesday’s election to help erase a slim lead Gillum had in the polls.

Gillum was hoping to become Florida’s first black governor and the first Democrat elected governor since 1994.

Republicans will enter their third decade of having complete control of Florida’s Capitol when DeSantis takes office in January.
