Ron DeSantis wins re-election as governor of Florida

Florida voters have given Republican Ron DeSantis a second term as governor of the state.

DeSantis won a challenge from Charlie Crist, a former Democratic Congressman

As a Republican, Charlie Crist served as Florida's governor more than a decade ago.

The win gives DeSantis a second term and a national platform as he tracks a possible race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

Charlie Crist was first elected governor after receiving support from then-President Donald Trump.

In his first term, DeSantis has delivered incendiary attacks on the Biden administration to Trump supporters.

DeSantis condemned the president's COVID policies and made White House medical adviser Anthony Fauci a prime target of criticism.

DeSantis has been an outspoken critic of the Biden administration on immigration, accusing it of not doing enough to stop the flow of migrants at the southern border.
