Florida Republicans have turned the state red by nearly overcoming Democrat’s voter registration advantage Friday.
In 2008, when former President Obama won Florida, Democrats’ voter registration lead over Republicans was 700,000. Fast forward to the beginning of 2021, Democrats’ lead shrank by 600,000 to 100,000. But on Friday, “that advantage has further narrowed to 23,055 over the past eight months,” according to numbers reported in August.
Regarding E-Verify, the Republican controlled legislature in 2020 “fell short of DeSantis’ 2018 campaign promise” and did not support “all public employers — such as local school districts, public universities and state agencies as well as their private contractors — to use E-Verify,” which has left loopholes for illegal immigrants to steal jobs from legal residents.

With the next legislative session gaveling in on January 11, it remains to be seen if Florida House Speaker Sprowls will act on his mandate.
