From that article: “Perhaps it’s reflected in the fact that Florida seems to have its election results come in smoothly and quickly, while almost every other state lags. But Florida represents the culmination of a conservative dream. What would happen if we actually had a candidate who perfectly articulated our views, then was elected and governed in accordance with that promise? For years, we were told that such a candidate would be a disaster and could win only in a solid red district in a rural part of Texas or Idaho. Well, not only has the most conservative governor of our time flipped the ultimate swing state of Florida to ruby red, but he tipped the legacy Democrat county of Palm Beach to red as well!
“The 30,000-vote margin of victory for Ron DeSantis in Florida over his radical Democratic opponent in 2018, a bad year for Republicans, was probably the most consequential 30,000 votes of our generation.

In 2019, Catherine Panico and Robin Shaffer ran separately as candidates for the Ocean City Board of Education. Both were defeated. This year they ran together with Liz Nicoletti and were successful. They won after an organized and disciplined campaign to raise awareness of the public school sex education courses that introduced explicit and inappropriate materials to younger children and purported to normalize abnormal and often dangerous sexual practices to teenagers.
