Well, we went and did it — Florida now has more Republicans than Democrats.
It’s been a long time coming, since the Reagan era. Even as the Democratic majority dwindled, party leaders smiled nervously and said things would turn around any day now.
But this month, the numbers actually flipped, though not by much.
Among 14.3 million registered voters, POLITICO’s superb Capitol reporter Gary Fineout wrote that Republicans have 6,035 more active registrants than the Democrats. GOP executive director Helen Aguirre Ferre’ called it “a milestone moment in Florida history.”
While the margin is small, it’s the trend that matters most.
