Ron DeSantis is our new Governor and it looks like Rick Scott will be heading to Washington as they both narrowly won their respective races for Governor and US Senator in yesterday's election. Senator Bill Nelson has yet to concede....and the race is close enough that it might trigger an automatic re-count.
