North Florida’s Hamilton County has officially flipped from blue to red. With 3,306 Republicans, the GOP now claims a majority of registered voters by a slim margin over the Democrat Party’s 3,302, official data on the Hamilton County Supervisor of Elections Office website shows. The county has a population of just over 14,000.
According to Evan Power, Chairman of Chairs for the Republican Party of Florida, Hamilton joins Franklin, Pinellas, Hendry and Jackson counties as the fifth GOP flip in the past two years.
“Governor DeSantis made a tremendous investment in Voter Registration at the Republican Party. This has allowed us to flip five counties and three in North Florida red over the last two years,” Power told The Florida Standard. “When you add that with the fact that republicans now lead democrats in total registration, it leaves no question that because of the leadership of Governor DeSantis and the hard work of our grassroots leaders, Florida continues to turn redder every day.”
Power also tipped his hat to the work of Chairman Ben Norris, state committeewoman Paige Bullard and state committeeman Tom Moffses.
