Republican Ron DeSantis Elected Florida Governor

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Ron DeSantis won the Florida governor’s race on Tuesday, bolstered by the strong support of fellow Republican President Donald Trump.

DeSantis, 40, a conservative former congressman, defeated Democrat Andrew Gillum, 39, the staunchly liberal mayor of state capital Tallahassee who was seeking to become Florida’s first black governor and who conceded the race.
