Florida will have a Republican governor for another four years. 

GOP candidate Ron DeSantis beat out his Democratic challenger Andrew Gillum. 

In his campaign, DeSantis pledged not to raise taxes and to prevent offshore oil drilling around Florida. He's closely aligned with President Donald Trump and earned Trump's endorsement.
