Remember when the Media had people convinced that Gillum was going to bring out the African American vote and that they would in theory vote party line, dragging Nelson over the finish line? 

 

Except, it did not work out that way, DeSantis beat Gillum by a wider margin than Scott beat Nelson? 

 

Why? Who were the cross-over voters who voted for Nelson, but not Gillum. 

 

Well, it seems they were African American women! Whodathunkit? 

 

From InstaPundit:

 

WSJ: School Choice Moms’ Tipped the Governor’s Florida Race: DeSantis owes his win to unexpected support from minority women.

 

Believe it or not, Republican Ron DeSantis owes his victory in the Florida gubernatorial election to about 100,000 African-American women who unexpectedly chose him over the black Democratic candidate, Andrew Gillum.

Of the roughly 650,000 black women who voted in Florida, 18% chose Mr. DeSantis, according to CNN’s exit poll of 3,108 voters. This exceeded their support for GOP U.S. Senate candidate Rick Scott (9%), Mr. DeSantis’s performance among black men (8%) and the GOP’s national average among black women (7%).

To be sure, 18% of the black female vote in Florida is equal to less than 2% of the total electorate. But in an election decided by fewer than 40,000 votes, these 100,000 black women proved decisive. Their apparent ticket splitting helps to explain why the Florida governor’s race wasn’t as close as the Florida Senate race, though Mr. Gillum was widely expected to carry Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson to victory on his coattails.

What explains Mr. DeSantis’ surprising support from African-American women? Two words: school choice.

More than 100,000 low-income students in Florida participate in the Step Up For Students program, which grants tax-credit funded scholarships to attend private schools. Even more students are currently enrolled in the state’s 650 charter schools.

Most Step Up students are minorities whose mothers are registered Democrats. Yet many of these “school-choice moms” vote for gubernatorial candidates committed to protecting their ability to choose where their child goes to school.

Four years ago, Gov. Scott narrowly won re-election thanks to a spike in support from school-choice moms. In 2016 more than 10,000 scholarship recipients joined Martin Luther King III in Tallahassee to protest a lawsuit filed by the teachers union in America’s largest-ever school choice rally.

Regrettably, Mr. Gillum’s campaign chose to ignore signs that many minority voters view school choice as ‘’the civil rights issue of our time,” to quote Condoleezza Rice.

Somehow, the AA Community is slowly escaping Uncle Barry/Aunt Hillary/Aunt Nancy's Economic Plantations.  After they worked hard to escape the physical plantations prior to 1865, it only took the Democrats 100 years before they got them enslaved once again.  This time by the $$$.

 

They did "Get Woke" and realized the Democrats have taken the AA vote for granted, and were now working hard to economically enslave the Hispanics and guarantee their vote for life.

 

I'm happy for the AA Community.  Donald Trump said "What have you got to lose...." and we was right.

 

Let me be the first to say someone will come along and yell RACIST.

Read school choice got the vote out for DeSantis on Black women as well.

I read the same or similar piece.  It makes a lot of sense, black mothers are often solo caregivers and public schools certainly aren’t helping to pick up the disciplinary slack.
