ABC has called Florida's open 13th Congressional district in favour of Republican Amma Paulina Luna over Democrat challenger Eric Lynn.
- The 13th district was left open by Rep Charlie Crist who chose to run for Florida state governor where he has been soundly defeated by incumbent Ron DeSantis (R-FL).
- In the Senate, Marco Rubio (R-FL) is projected to win easily over Rep Val Demings (D-FL). A landslide across the board for the GOP in Florida in a state which Democrats saw potential pickups this cycle.
- It increasingly looks like Florida is shaping up as a Republican stronghold. Its days as a swing state likely numbered.
