The Red Wave is starting.
Multiple Florida school boards flipped from liberal to conservative on Tuesday night.
Clay County now has a 3-2 conservative majority, Sarasota County now has a 4-1 conservative majority, Miami-Dade County flipped conservative, Martin County flipped conservative and Duval County also did.
Florida flipped multiple major school boards from liberal to conservative Tuesday evening, continuing a nationwide trend of parents taking back control of public schools.
Florida school board elections have been a major political battleground this cycle, with big names like Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and Rep. Byron Donalds (R) making endorsements and joining the campaign trail.
“We saw massive election victories all throughout the state of Florida tonight,” 1776 Project PAC founder Ryan Girdusky told Breitbart News Tuesday. “It shows the desire of parents and residents across the country for some normalcy in our education system, and that means pushing against transgender ideology, critical race theory, critical gender ideology, and equity which destroys merit in education.”
1776 Project PAC endorsed many of the winning candidates, its founder Ryan Girdusky, tweeted out a list of places where seats were flipped.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis all endorsed candidates – almost all of them won.
Almost all of the candidates Mr. DeSantis endorsed won, unofficial county election results showed. The candidates’ victories are expected to inject conservative priorities into county-level boards that have drawn heightened public scrutiny in recent years, beginning with school closures and mask mandates and extending to how educators handle matters of gender identity and race.
“Florida has led with purpose and conviction that our school system is about education, not indoctrination,” Mr. DeSantis posted on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, along with an image of his slate of 30 “pro-parent” candidates. At least 20 won on Tuesday, and five went to runoffs.
