DeSantis On GOP Dominating Virginia Races: Red Wave ‘Building’ Into 2022, More Backlash Than In 2010

1

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) responded to the Republican Party’s strong showing in this week’s Virginia elections by saying in an interview that a red wave was building heading into 2022 and that there would be more backlash than Democrats faced in 2010 when Republicans picked up 63 seats in the House of Representatives.

“I think people are rebelling against what the Democratic Party stands for nowadays, the never ending mandates and restrictions because a COVID, using our school system for leftist indoctrination, rather than high quality education, and then the Biden regime failures from Afghanistan to the southern border, gas prices, inflation, supply chain,” DeSantis told Fox News. “I think you had Glenn Youngkin, who really I think did a great job, was a great candidate, and I think he really represented a contrasting vision that was much more appealing to the majority of Virginians.”

“And I do think … this wave is building, I think it was strong last night, but I think it’s going to keep building all the way into ’22,” DeSantis continued. “And if you go back to the 2010 wave that Republicans had, I think there’s more dissatisfaction with what’s going on in D.C. today than there was at this time in that election cycle. And that is good news for Republicans. And that is bad news for Joe Biden and his regime.”

PARTIAL TRANSCRIPT:

STEVE DOOCY, FOX NEWS HOST: All right. Yesterday, voters in Virginia delivered a shocking blow to Democrats and Joe Biden, as Republican Glenn Youngkin won the race for governor.

BRIAN KILMEADE, FOX NEWS HOST: Yup, here to discuss this and so much more, what it means for the party, and is this indeed a red wave, is GOP governor, who won by one point, but now he’s running for re-election again, Ron DeSantis. Governor, welcome back. What was, what is your takeaway from what might be happening in New Jersey with a victory? And what did happen in Virginia?

RON DESANTIS, GOVERNOR OF FLORIDA (R): Well, I think people are rebelling against what the Democratic Party stands for nowadays, the never-ending mandates and restrictions because of COVID, using our school system for leftist indoctrination, rather than high quality education, and then the Biden regime failures from Afghanistan to the southern border, gas prices, inflation, supply chain. I think you had Glenn Youngkin, who really I think did a great job, was a great candidate, and I think he really represented a contrasting vision that was much more appealing to the majority of Virginians. And I do think, Brian, this wave is building; I think it was strong last night, but I think it’s going to keep building all the way into 2022. And if you go back to the 2010 wave that Republicans had, I think there’s more dissatisfaction with what’s going on in D.C. today than there was at this time in that election cycle. And that is good news for Republicans. And that is bad news for Joe Biden and his regime.
