GOP Flips 2 House Seats as Dems’ South Florida Woes Continue


The Democratic Party’s losses don’t stop with 2020’s presidential race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

In addition to Biden losing the state, the Democratic Party has also lost two key house seats.

The GOP has managed to flip Florida’s 26th and 27th congressional districts, both of which are in the Miami area.

Both of these key races, along with Trump’s win make for a pretty outstanding Florida performance by Republicans on election night.

Republican Carlos Gimenez won the election in Florida’s 26th Congressional District, beating out incumbent Representative Debbie Mucarsel-Powell.

Additionally, Republican Maria Elvira Salazar won the state’s 27th district, beating yet another incumbent Representative Donna Shalala.

“Dem wipeout in Miami-Dade #Florida. Two Dem House incumbents lost. Multiple state legislative seats go from Blue to Red. Trump cut the Democrat margin of victory by over half from 2016,” Senator Marco Rubio wrote on Twitter.

Earlier in the night, President Trump locked down the state of Florida, a key battleground state that many considered to be an absolute necessity for the Republican on his path to win reelection.
