Polk and Volusia Counties Flip from Democrat to Republican
As a result of the Republican Party of Florida's Project Majority Red, the party's statewide voter registration effort, Polk and Volusia Conty have both moved from majority Democrat to majority Republican, RPOF Chairman Blaise Ingoglia has announced.
“... Polk and Volusia counties have officially joined the ranks and flipped,” Ingoglia said Wednesday. “For several election cycles, we have tirelessly worked to train and empower our grassroots leaders of the Republican Party because they are the lifeline to expanding our party.
"Together, we implemented initiatives to engage new voters and mobilize this enthusiastic team of county leaders and volunteers in order to win elections. The momentum is building, and Polk and Volusia counties are continued proof that the RPOF remains hard at work, even during an off-year."
Under Ingoglia, 12 counties have flipped from majority Democrat to majority Republican: Baker, Bradford, Columbia, Gulf, Hardee, Holmes, Okeechobee, Pinellas, Polk, Suwannee, Volusia and Washington.
