You can add two more names to the list of counties that have switched from having a majority of voters registered as Democrats to a majority of those voters now registered as Republicans.
The Republican Party of Florida announced that Polk and Volusia counties are the latest to become majority Republican.
“The momentum is building, and Polk and Volusia counties are continued proof that the RPOF remains hard at work, even during an off-year,” RPOF chairman Blaise Ingoglia said in a release.
Under Ingoglia’s leadership a total of 12 Florida counties have flipped to being majority Republican.
The counties include: Baker, Bradford, Columbia, Gulf, Hardee, Holmes, Okeechobee, Pinellas, Polk, Suwannee, Volusia and Washington.
Ingoglia calls it Project Red Majority, a statewide voter registration effort.
“For several election cycles, we have tirelessly worked to train and empower our grassroots leaders of the Republican Party because they are the lifeline to expanding our party,” Ingoglia added. “ Together, we implemented initiatives to engage new voters and mobilize this enthusiastic team of county leaders and volunteers in order to win elections.”
According to the Florida Division of Elections website, of Florida’s 67 counties, 39 now have a majority of Republican registered voters.
The Democrats still maintain a statewide lead in registration–4.8 million to 4.5 million.
