After Ron DeSantis won a landslide victory, the Florida Governor declared, “We will never, ever surrender to the woke mob.”

DeSantis described his victory as a “win for the ages,” before channeling Winston Churchill in a fiery speech.

“We fight the woke in the Legislature. We fight the woke in the schools. We fight the woke in the corporations. We will never, ever surrender to the woke mob,” he roared.

The Florida Governor was up 60 per cent to 40 per cent against Democrat Charlie Crist with 90 per cent of the votes counted, increasing his margin of victory, while also overturning the former Democratic stronghold of Miami-Dade County.

“We will have garnered a significant number of votes from people who may not have voted for me four years ago,” said DeSantis.

On a largely bad night for Republicans, DeSantis’ huge victory was a sign for many that the Trump era was over and that it was time to get behind the Florida Governor for his expected 2024 run.

However, Trump refused to concede that the results represented a disappointment, asserting it was a “great evening.”

Trump-backed former NFL star Herschel Walker is also trailing in Georgia with most of the votes counted.

Democrats are also likely to hold on in Nevada and Arizona, meaning they will retain control of the Senate.

In the Virginia House race, Yesli Vega, who was also backed by Trump and had questioned the results of the 2020 election, was beaten by former CIA officer Abigail Spanberger.

Early results of a Twitter poll suggest many people have now abandoned Trump and want to see DeSantis as the Republican candidate in 2024.
