Red wave starts with DeSantis, Rubio winning in Florida

Sen. Marco Rubio has won his third term in the U.S. Senate. The Republican beat Democrat Rep. Val Demings in a race watched around the country as a mandate on the presidency of Joe Biden. The current standing is Rubio-57 to Demings-42.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has also been called the winner by NBC and ABC news, defeating Democrat Charlie Crist. NBC and ABC called the race for DeSantis. The current standing is DeSantis-59.3 to Crist-41.2.

“While our country flounders due to failed leadership in Washington, Florida is on the right track. I believe the survival of the American experiment requires a revival of true American principles. Florida has proved that it can be done!” DeSantis said in a speech at a rally tonight.

The strong showing of these Republicans shows that Florida is no longer a swing state. It appears that evening Miami-Dade County the vote went Republican by an 8-point advantage, with 66 percent of the vote, showing Hispanics are walking away from the Democratic Party.

Also in Florida, there have been flips of congressional seats to the Republicans including Cory Mills over Democrat Karen Green for the 7th Congressional District seat.

In just now from CNN: “Stay off social media, people. If you’re trying to figure out are there really issues with voting, trust your local officials and trust us here,” said John King, political reporter.

Also winning is Republican Sarah Huckabee Sanders for Arkansas governor, with 59.3%. Gov. Greg Abbott is winning in Texas by 54.2% over Beto O’Rourke.

Republican Herschel Walker is winning for Senate in Georgia, 49.y% over Sen. Warnock. Also in Georgia, Stacey Abrams has been crushed by Gov. Brian Kemp, 53.7-45.6.

Democrat Colorado Gov. Jared Polis is leaning into a reelection win, fending off Republican Heidi Ganahl. In Massachusetts, Democrat Maura Healey has been elected governor, the nation’s first openly lesbian governor. This returns the state to Democrat control after eight years under Republican Gov. Charlie Baker.

  1. Thank you, Florida, for supporting America First! Desantis is the best Governor in the USA!

    Question is, will Alaska beat the fraud machine and elect America First candidates?

    Can we see through the election interference by the DOJ thugs that are monitoring our elections in:

    The Justice Department says it plans to monitor compliance with federal voting rights laws in 64 jurisdictions in 24 states for the Nov. 8, 2022 general election.

    Since the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the Civil Rights Division has regularly monitored elections in the field in jurisdictions around the Country to protect the rights of voters. The Civil Rights Division will also take complaints from the public nationwide regarding possible violations of the federal voting rights laws through its call center.

    For the general election, the Civil Rights Division will monitor for compliance with the federal voting rights laws on Election Day and/or in early voting in 64 jurisdictions:

    In Alaska;

    • City of Bethel, Alaska;

    • Dillingham Census Area, Alaska;

    • Kusilvak Census Area, Alaska;

    • Sitka City-Borough, Alaska;

    Why is DOJ allowed to intimidate voters in any State? These are not Federal Elections; they are State Elections. Why is Dunleavy allowing them at polling places without a crime being committed? We need a Governor that abides in the U.S. Constitution, and this is a violation of States Rights!

  2. Wait….how can this be true?? Did Dominion machines get hit with a virus? Was George Soros asleep? Did someone pay off the Venezuelan internet operatives?

    How did we win?? Please, someone explain…

    • 1-Independents broke hard for Democrats. Residual fear of Trump.
      2-Trump himself. His hand picked candidates were more alienating than unifying.
      3-Early voting.
      4-The Democrats outspent the GOP.
      5-Media bias.
      6-The Democrats played the right brilliantly. They funded Republican candidates not capable of willing and pushed them into general elections.
      7-The GOP is brain dead.
      8-Mitch McConnell
      9-Low voter turnout due to (again) really bad polling
      10-America is a left of center country.
      11-Well to do white women vote hard left.
      12-Abortion ruling so close to Election Day
      13-A celebrity focused culture more interested In Jennifer Lawerence than their local politicians.

      Shall I go on?

      Simple, sad fact. History says a Republic only lasts about 200 years before collapsing into some form of Fascism or Oligarchy. Which is where we are.

  3. When you do nothing to address election integrity, you get what we got tonight. If we learned nothing in 20, we will have learned nothing by 24.

    • Absolutely 100% I watched Mike Lindell on Frankspeech.com and saw with my own eyes tampering in real time. An expert showed election interference in 2 races…Oz (who would have won) and Walker (who was winning). They pre-set the algorithm for the candidate they want to win based on expectation. As the same-day votes started coming in and Oz votes began to rise higher than to where the program was set, (the red wave), there was a sudden spike and the algorithm jumped up to put the dem candidate ahead by thousands of votes. In one case I saw, the algorithm was set too high which is suspicious, so it was corrected and went backwards by thousands of votes! But there are many signs experts can point to. If you asak me, I think Walker won and Oz won. There are many errors cheaters make that leave a trail and all this evidence should be in court!

    • So is Florida showing the rest of the nation how to do it, this will only help 2 years from now. Are you calling the dismembering of the head honcho from a New York district in the US House not a red wave? Murkowski is going to go down surely that can be part of the wave we’re taking seats in the House. Maybe you just can’t see the water because it’s foggy in your world.

  4. What we learned tonight:

    -Half of the country is fine with high gas prices, product shortages, energy shortages, and experimenting on/mutating children.

    -Just like in Anchorage, lockdowns and their devastating effects are fine with voters.

    -High crime and violence is fine. Especially in blue cities.

    -Borders? Who needs them?

    -It’s time for Trump to go. It’s arguable his meddling in races helped give the Democrats wins in places like Penn, Georgia, Arizona, maybe even here. One can only wonder what might have happened if he’d spent some of his money on supporting his candidates.

    -Never, ever discount the Republican ability to lose. It’s time to replace the GOP.

    • No, it’s time for a good conservative leader to appear and reveal Trump for the fraud that he is.

      Our presidential elections haven’t been about who is Republican and who is Democrat for a long time, it’s been about who can attract moderates and conservative independents since the mid-70’s.

      Clinton failed in 2016 to attract the key voters of 2016, the conservative independents. Trump failed to attract the key voters of 2020, the moderates.

      A Reagan-esque conservative, could easily take it all in 2024, all he would have to do is sound like a rational man instead of a screaming and Twittering schoolyard bully.

      Yes, if I were to place blame for the Republicans to flatout dominating the midterms, I would put all of it on Trump. Frankly, if he could have just stayed out of the limelight until Wednesday, he would have done all of us a favor.

  5. Maybe NOW we can dispense with the delusion Alaska is a red state. Mary is on track to win, and Princess is doing the same.

    Kudos to Porcaro for making dystopia a reality. Must be proud of his RCV baby.

  6. Republicans lost what would have been a great senator when Pennsylvania voted in John Fetterman instead of Dr. Oz. I am still shaking my head over this one. And it appears that Big Mike is going down to the wire in his bid for a second term. For the sake of Alaska, I hope he gets the second term. Either Gara or Walker will be a disaster. If there has to be a third run on the RCV governor’s race, I hope it is with Gara and Dunleavy, as some of Walker’s voters might not want to sign off on Gara and rank Dunleavy there instead.Charlie will not survive round one and I hope his voters all ranked Big Mike second. As for the national picture it is now looking a lot less like a large wave. I really will hate it if we lose Hershel Walker in Georgia. On the other case, it looks like we got JD Vance in Ohio so some good news. It will be interesting to see what the final outcome is in many of these states. As for Alaska, that is my first love and I can only hope for the best for the Great Land.

    • They rightly voted down someone who a citizen of Turkey. In Pennsylvania where the nemisis of the Turkish ruler lives who the Turkish ruler has been trying endlessly to kill?

    • Please do not be demoralized by what you see. There was INDEED a red wave! But the left would seek to downplay it. Conservatives DID make some nice advances. Personally, I believe Oz and Hershal had their races stolen from them. I watched election tampering in real time on Frank Speech.com (Mike Lindells site). They had computer forensics experts watching the algorithms and showing the viewers what was happening. They start off by setting the algorithm higher for the guy they want to win…too high to be believable for the first round of ballot counting. The algorithm for Fetterman matched (dead giveaway) exactly that for Oz (except several thousand votes ahead). As the same day votes were tallied, OZ votes reached and were about to surpass the programming for Fetterman.(that’s the Red Wave surge) Suddenly, there was a spike and the algorithm for Fetterman jumped up in response to the votes for Oz. This is why we should vote on election day and not before so cheaters have less opportunity to set the programming accurately. There are likewise some other anomalies leaving experts scratching their heads. All indications…even by Left media…were for a Red Wave. I believe it did happen, but some funny business going on. They can’t steal every election, but they focused on certain areas. We DO have some great wins!

  7. Not only did Ron and Marco win, they beat the hell out of their opponents with DeSantis winning by 20% and Rubio winning by 16%. Florida has done its job. Now it’s up to everyone else. It’s looking good for Kelly up there, and honestly, I don’t think Palin and Begich had a chance. But maybe the gal from Bethel will be different with pelosi gone.

  8. Freedom and freedom of speech is God-given. Those who infringing that gift to us from God will be held accountable. Congratulations to conservative champions!

      • I’m sure you feel clever, but I challenge you to read the Federalist Papers, study the constitutional convention, deeply study Jefferson, and maybe go to source material personally and then go climb that “clever” hill.

  9. Unfortunately, that so-called “Red Wave” did not move much beyond Florida.
    .
    Face it: this country is doomed. It’s all over. Whether via fraud, or via mass public stupidity and ignorance, or both, what should have been a massive and unprecedented repudiation of the Democrat’s national death cult did not happen, virtually at all. The globalists have won, and freedom, liberty, common sense and life have lost.

    • At least that pork chop eating Stacey Abrams from Georgia lost to Kent. But then Herschel Walker and the other guy who are neck and neck are both black so did the black decide not to vote for anyone? I don’t think so.

  10. No red wave, partly due to President Trump backing terrible candidates like Oz, Herschel Walker & Sarah Palin.
    Also the bad timing of the Roe reversal. Unfortunately we are a purple country, just like Lisa wants it.

    • The Republican Party has abandoned all pretense of fiscal conservatism and morally defendable behavior with the advancement of such candidates as Walker and Palin. It’s just as bad as the Democratic Party now – all that matters is winning, and not the character or principles of the party.

    • Trump. His hand picked candidates weren’t ready for prime time, he didn’t support them financially (he had over $100 million), and sadly white women voted on emotion over pocketbook issues.

      We’re a prime example. Queen Sarah is almost as detested as Trump, and all his bluster over defeating Princess was just that. Bluster. He didn’t put his money or his machine behind them. One lost, the other probably will.

    • The thing about a tidal wave or tsunami is that out in the ocean it moves 500 miles an hour and is little more than a ripple but when it gets closer to land and comes on shore it can rip you a new one. So taking back the majority in the house and controlling the southern border initiative and possibly even impeaching Biden should account for something.

  11. Irony, but it’s classic to where we are.

    One of my wife’s relatives is in danger of losing her house and can’t pay her bills due to Biden’s economy. She genuinely doesn’t understand where her money has gone and why her stocks are tanking. But she gleefully voted straight blue.

  12. This could have, should have, and would have been a Red Wave except for one thing…

    Orange man, who had been laying low for a few days, had to reappear with mouth fully engaged two days before the elections.

    The fact is, no other person in the world can motivate a Democrat to get out to vote more than Donald Trump. The boy needed to keep his mouth shut for three more days and He Just Couldn’t Do It.

    Even he admitted that if R did poorly he’d get the blame, and if R did well, no one would give him credit…well, gee, Donald, if even you thought so, why didn’t you just STFU for a couple days? There is a reason so many people, apparently including Trump, thought so.

    Essentially, he cost the GOP Pennsylvania and Georgia. He may also have brought Peltola into a comfortable 50%+, we’ll see.

    Thanks, Donald. With friends like you…

      • At this point all he’s doing is shooting holes in his boat. He’s like palin in that they both feed off of the limelight. He can’t just shut the hell up. Has anyone noticed that our vice president is turning more white? She straightened her hair and today it looks Brown. Granted she’s already half white but it’s like a transformation. I wonder if they’re changing up some chromosome stuff on her.

  13. The “red wave” came in as a ripple compared to the more recent mid-term elections; whatever its potential ramifications may be for the 2024 GOP presidential primaries, it is certain that Governor DeSantis will be going in with a royal flush, and Trump–if he enters–will go blustering in with three-sixes in hand! I’d go with DeSantis: he is young and smart! Trump is but a vile, old fart!

  14. Not the majority in the house we wanted and Senate still up for grabs, Not a wave but a good start. Bisen’s answer is to say 2 police officers died on Jan. 6. One died after of natural causes not 2 from the riot. Says Jan 6 made us look bad on world stage. Not like the endless riots that did cause deaths for over 100 days. Funny he did not mention the end of Democracy today.

    • I think the Republicans that did bad channeled Trump too much. They should have styled themselves after DeSantis. I think we would do better in 2024 with DeSantis. We need to win one of the last 3 senate seats to get simple majority. Early voting helped Fetterman because a lot of votes were cast before debate with Oz. Look for the Democrats to delay more debates.

  15. The simple fact of the matter is that only extremists are attracted to Trump and that does two destructive things:

    1. It energizes the Democrats.

    2. It alienates moderates and reasonable conservatives.

    When the Democrats are energized, they actually vote. When moderates and rational conservatives are alienated, they either vote Democrat or don’t vote at all.

    The longer Trump remains a voice, the more he does For the Democrats and the more he does Against Republicans.

    When it’s all said and done, Trump has the attention that he wants, but Democrats win the elections.

    I really don’t think it matters much to the Donald who wins as long as he has a spotlight pointed on him.

  16. People forget that the Republicans gained 14 seats in 2020, which was unprecedented when a Democrat wins the Presidency in that election. Enough additional seats this election to retire Nancy Pelosi and even more in 2024 when we take back the White House. A good trend but not the wave many anticipated.
