    Surge Summary: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Ohio Senator-elect J.D. Vance demonstrate the way for pro-life, pro-family candidates to win. The Republican Party needs to take note.

    “The 2022 election proved that candidates who are uncompromising on life and the family are winners,” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., president of the Ruth Institute.

    “A case in point is Florida’s Gov. Ron DeSantis, who was reelected by a 19-point margin, the largest in a Florida governor’s race in 40 years. When he won his first term in 2018, his margin of victory was a scant 32,000 votes. This time, he cruised to victory with a lead of 1.5 million votes.”

    “DeSantis even won in traditionally Democratic Dade County, which hasn’t voted Republican in a governor’s race in 20 years.”

    “Family advocates have a friend in the Florida governor,” Morse said. In his victory speech, DeSantis stated: “We have embraced freedom… We have protected the rights of parents… and we reject woke ideology.”

    “That’s no idle boast,” Morse noted. “The governor helped pass a parents’ bill of rights, which prohibits any discussion of sexual identity in public schools before the third grade. When the Disney Corporation opposed the measure, DeSantis worked to remove its local tax exemptions.”

    DeSantis also pledged to expand protections for the unborn from the current 15-week ban on abortion to a heartbeat bill. “This may in part account for the governor’s inroads among the state’s growing Hispanic community, which is traditionally both pro-life and pro-family,” Morse said.

    Similarly, in Ohio, Republican J.D. Vance beat Democrat Tim Ryan, a 20-year veteran of Congress, 53% to 46%.

    Vance said: “I am 100% pro-life, and I believe abortion has turned our society into a place where we see children as an inconvenience to be thrown away rather than a blessing to be nurtured.”

    Morse concluded, “DeSantis and Vance have charted a path for the Republican Party by showing that a pro-family candidate can win.”
