    Trump-Backed Veteran Flips Florida Congressional Seat Red in Dominant Fashion

    Published on

    On Tuesday, Republican Cory Mills defeated Democrat Karen Green to win Florida’s U.S. House District 7 election. Mills was supported by former President Donald Trump.

    According to The New York Times, Mills successfully switched the seat from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party by winning 58.5 percent of the vote to Green’s 41.5 percent.

    Democrat Stephanie Murphy, who has held the position thus far, will leave it at the end of the year.

    Following the 2020 U.S. Census, the Florida Legislature redrew the area to the north of Orlando, making it more Republican.

    According to his campaign website, Mills fought in the illustrious 82nd Airborne Division and is a veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Shortly before the 45th president’s term ends in 2020, Trump nominated Mills to the Defense Business Board.

    Republican candidate Anna Paulina Luna, an Air Force veteran, likewise prevailed in her contest, flipping Florida’s 13th Congressional District.

    According to the Times, Luna defeated Eric Lynn with roughly 53% of the vote to 45% for the Democrat.

    Charlie Crist, a Democrat, served as the representative for the 13th District, which encompasses St. Petersburg and Clearwater. He resigned earlier this year to run against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

    With around 59 percent of the vote to Crist’s 40 percent, DeSantis easily defeated Crist.

    The margin of victory for Republican Sen. Marco Rubio over Democrat Val Demmings was roughly 58 percent to 41 percent.

    Overall, Florida seems to be the red wave’s epicenter.
