Florida has been awash with campaigning and millions of dollars have been spent in ads across both political parties as voters will go to the polls on Tuesday to decide Florida's political future in a historic midterm election. However, despite spending on both sides, the state is expected to cement its status as a red state in this historic Midterm.

Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis seems set on a path to reelection and continues to garner support for a possible 2024 Presidential run. According to the Orlando Sentinel, he has raised over $247 million for his campaign through Oct. 31, with most money coming from billionaires and corporate interests. His challenger, Democrat Charlie Crist, has raised only $31.4 million.

DeSantis has also spent more than Crist in every media corner and even donated to the campaigns of other Republicans throughout the country.

Democratic Rep Val Demings has also been using her experience as a former Orlando police chief in her run against incumbent Republican Senator Marco Rubio, who she has managed to raise more money than. Rubio is still expected to win a third term, according to Politico, though the race could help shape which political party controls the Senate.

Analysts and political scientists have been watching the midterm election in Florida closely as a red wave is predicted to surge and cement Florida's status as a red state. This is after a long history of being a swing state.

As for why a red wave is predicted, districts have been redrawn in Florida, which gives Republicans an edge.

Typically, Florida Democrats received large amounts of money from out-of-state donors. Michael Bloomberg donated $100 million in 2020 and George Soros donated over $1 million to Andrew Gillum's political committee in 2018. However, this year, those donations went elsewhere.

"Forty million goes a lot farther in Oklahoma than in Florida," Democratic consultant and president and CEO of Miami-based Public Communicators Group Evan Ross told the Sentinel.
