Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is up for reelection this fall.
DeSantis recently shattered fundraising records, raising more than $100 million for his reelection efforts.
And now Ron DeSantis just made one major ad buy in Florida that left the Democrats trembling in fear.
Democrats have traditionally depended on the support of the Hispanic community to help them win elections, with Barack Obama garnering 71 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2012.
However, starting with Donald Trump, Hispanic voters have been trending more Republican each election.
According to a post-election report published by Pew Research, Trump won nearly 40 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2020.
And the trend is continuing into 2022, as Hispanic voters are rejecting the Democrats’ woke ideology and open border policies.
Florida has one of the largest percentages of Hispanic voters in America.
A recent Axios/Ipsos poll showed that Ron DeSantis’ standing increased seven percent among Hispanic voters just since the last poll, which was taken in December.
In March, 46 percent of Hispanics had a favorable opinion of DeSantis, compared to 39 percent in December.
But Ron DeSantis’ approval numbers among Hispanics will likely increase even more thanks to a new $5 million ad buy targeting the community in Florida.
On Wednesday, DeSantis announced that his campaign will spend $5.3 million to reserve ad time on Spanish language broadcast, cable, radio, and digital to run ads.
“As Joe Biden and the Democrat Party continue to lose their footing with the Hispanic community, Republicans are gaining and growing,” the DeSantis campaign wrote in a statement.
“Spanish-speaking Hispanics in Florida and across the country are moving towards Governor Ron DeSantis because of his emphasis on economic opportunity, education, public safety, and other family-focused policies,” the campaign statement continued. “This is our first media investment of the campaign, proving the importance we are placing on sharing our freedom agenda with Spanish-speaking voters across the state of Florida.”
DeSantis recently set a goal of winning so big in November that Florida would go from a swing state to a solid red state.
With DeSantis already crushing his potential Democrat opponents in hypothetical matchups, increasing his support among the Hispanic community could help him achieve his goal of turning the Sunshine State red.
And this is terrifying to the Democrats.
