GOP also retains control of both houses of the Florida Legislature
Tonight, following the closing of polls across all 67 counties, Governor Ron DeSantis announced that President Donald J. Trump has secured enough votes to win the state of Florida and that Republicans will retain control of both chambers of the Florida Legislature.
This Thanksgiving, we take a moment to reflect on the blessings we have as Americans, giving thanks for family, freedom and community. We are thankful for our military, for the veterans who have served selflessly to protect those freedoms around the globe, and for those still serving and willing to give the last full measure for us at home. We are thankful for our frontline healthcare workers, as well as our law enforcement officers who keep our communities safe and the firefighters and paramedics willing to run toward danger, saving lives daily. We are thankful to live in a land of opportunity and hope.

Re: Letter from Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried to Governor Ron DeSantis related to the distribution of the COVID vaccine
Tallahassee, FL—”It’s nice to see that Commissioner Nikki Fried is taking time out of her vacation to send out an ill-informed, irresponsible letter on social media that prioritizes politics over helping Floridians who are interested in the vaccine. Frankly, she should be embarrassed to have signed this letter (let’s be honest – it was auto-penned).
The Republican Party of Florida is excited to share the Republican Lieutenant Governors Association (RLGA), a caucus of the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC), announced that our Florida Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez will serve as the committee’s chairman through 2021.
“Republicans around the country are looking at the State of Florida for leadership,” Gov. DeSantis said.
Orlando (January 16, 2021) — At the Republican Party of Florida’s Annual Meeting today, Joe Gruters was unanimously re-elected without opposition to a second two-year term as Chairman. Virtually the entirety of the Republican Party of Florida’s leadership attended, including Gov. Ron DeSantis and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio giving members updates.
Statement from the Republican Party of Florida:
“Nikki Fried is once again using her official office for political grandstanding and has been campaigning for governor since the day she was elected.
“While Governor DeSantis put seniors first, kept our kids in school, and businesses open, Charlie Crist advocated for lockdowns, restrictions on businesses, and backed the teachers’ unions efforts to keep our kids from the classroom. Crist supports defunding the police and has voted 100% of the time for Nancy Pelosi’s radical agenda. He even betrayed those who fled communism when he embraced Castro regime officials in a secret trip to Cuba.” – Helen Aguirre Ferre, Executive Director of RPOF
Pelosi’s Puppets Fight to Advance Socialist Agenda
Today, the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) launched FloridaDems.com highlighting how the Florida Democrats running for the U.S. Senate are dangerous liberals who would be nothing more than a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi’s socialist agenda.
“Nikki Fried is conspiracy-spouting lockdown zealot who has accomplished absolutely nothing while in office. Instead of working for the people of Florida, Fried spends her time pushing partisan lies on social media. Her claim to fame is wasting tax dollars to plaster her face on gas pumps and cash registers across Florida. Rather than seek a promotion, she should refund her taxpayer-funded salary to atone for the complete waste her tenure in office has been.” – RPOF Executive Director Helen Aguirre Ferre
