During an appearance on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures over the weekend, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told host Maria Bartiromo that Florida is no longer a swing state.

“When I became governor of Florida had never had more registered Republicans than Democrats in state history,” DeSantis told host Maria Bartiromo. “And we were close to 300,000 fewer Republicans and Democrats, this is 2018. 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, non-party to Republican than vice versa and that’s been an important component of it,” he continued. “But I do think that migration has skewed amongst people who come to Florida, not because they want to change the policies to reflect in Illinois, or California or 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.”

“Florida is off the board,” he added. “It is a Republican state, you’ve 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.”
