‘There Is No Substitute For Victory’: Ron DeSantis Lays Out The Roadmap For Republicans To Dominate | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) laid out the roadmap this weekend for Republicans to dominate politically in the coming years following Republicans' blowout wins earlier this month in the midterm elections.

    DeSantis made the remarks during a 25-minute speech on Saturday at the annual leadership meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition.

    The governor, who numerous recent polls have shown is the top candidate to be the Republican Party's presidential nominee in 2024, began by highlighting the success of Republicans in the state of Florida during the midterms.

    "We added four new Republican congressmen to the U.S. House of Representatives from the state of Florida," he said. "We secured super majorities in the Florida legislature, the most Republicans we've ever had in Florida history. We helped elect 26 new conservative school board members all across the state of Florida. And we even won the state House seat that includes Miami Beach, not typically viewed as a Republican stronghold."

    "And because of the support of so many of you to our campaign, we delivered the greatest gubernatorial victory in the history of the state of Florida," he continued. "We dominated with independent voters, we secured record margins with Hispanic voters, we swept the suburbs all across the state of Florida. Our margins with rural voters were gravity defying, we won by double digits, Miami Dade County. We won for the first time in almost 40 years, Palm Beach County."

    DeSantis said that the election results showed that the state should be the "blueprint for success" for the party moving forward.

    "And I think some of the things that we do that work are we're all about exercising leadership, and delivering results for the people that we represent," he said. "I did not take any polls when I became governor all the way through this entire term. The job of a leader is not to stick your finger in the wind and try to contort yourself to wherever public opinion may be trending on one given moment. No, the job of a leader is to set out a vision, to execute that vision, to show people that it's the right vision and to deliver concrete results. And when you do that, the people respond."

    DeSantis then highlighted numerous policy initiatives that he took on during his first term as governor, including several on the cultural battlefield, like fighting against woke indoctrination and fighting to protect women's sports.

    "What we've shown in Florida is you can stand up for truth, you can stand on principle, you can fight the woke elite, and you can win," he said. "And I think this is important because the survival of the American experiment requires a revival of the enduring American principles that make this country unique. And Florida's formula is everything we do is rooted in those founding principles of our country, we douse it with a very heavy dose of common sense, which is in very short supply nowadays. And we buttress that, with having the courage to lead on issues where you know, you may get incoming fire, but that's the price of leadership nowadays."

    "Anything you do that's meaningful, you are going to have people that are going to shoot at you, they're going to take potshots at you, they're going to criticize you, they're going to smear you, you got to be willing to stand strong, you got to be willing to take those hits, and keep on going," he continued. "But guess what, when you stand up for what's right, when you show people you're willing to fight for them, they will walk over broken glass barefoot to come vote for you. And that's exactly what they did for me on November 8 in record numbers. But what we've shown is people respond to strong leadership."

    DeSantis noted that the last couple of years under President Joe Biden's (D) leadership have been difficult and that Florida has shown that "in times like these, there is no substitute for victory."

    "We in Florida are the light, freedom will reign supreme with Florida leading the way," he added. "I can tell you this, we've got a lot more to do and I have only begun to fight."

In the most recent Midterms Election, the "Republican Red Wave" turned out to be a "Republican Red Ripple," which, as in all elections, confounded the political prognosticators of what to expect down the governing /political road: What, and who, do you think is best for this meandering Representative Republic in the near future?
  Because they know how to best allocate the public's money back to the right part of the public, the Democrats will NOW always prevail and get my vote.
  With patriotic pragmatism the cornerstone of the best of the Republican Party, they will ultimately save this Constitutional Republic from self-destruction.
  Since the Executive Branch is so important to turn this Representative Republic around, I am still on Team Trump in 2024.
  Since the nation may need a different path to Conservative patriotism in the Executive, I am joining Team DeSantis.
  Because I am entitled to take the government dole, the prevailing favoritism whenever possible, I will support any, and every Democrat candidate.
