Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who ran second to Donald Trump for the GOP nomination but dropped out earlier this year and quickly endorsed the former president, has now dropped several truth bombs on Joe Biden and his Democratic Party.

Specifically, DeSantis has informed his political opponents they shouldn’t even waste their time trying to win the state in an interview with “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo.

“When I became governor, Florida had never had more registered Republicans than Democrats in state history, and we were close to 300,000 fewer Republicans than Democrats. This is 2018,” DeSantis said.

“Today, we have close to 900,000 more registered Republicans than Democrats. So, you’re talking about a million-plus voter registration shift. And, yes, part of that I think is a response locally, where people are more likely to switch from Democrat to Republican in Florida, nonparty to Republican, then vice versa,” he continued.

“And that’s been an important component of it. But I do think the migration has skewed amongst people who come to Florida, not because they want to change the policies to reflect in Illinois or California, New York, but because they appreciate how Florida has done it different from where they’re coming to. And so I think that’s contributed to this really record thing,” he noted further.

“Maria, Florida is off the board. It is a Republican state. You have covered politics. We used to be a one-point state. Every election hung on, how would Florida go? That is not true anymore. And I think that’s a good thing for the party,” he said.
