The congressional race between combat veteran Cory Mills and Florida Democratic Party Vice Chairwoman Karen Green was over before it even started the moment the primary election was over.
Mills, who has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, and dozens of Republican members of Congress, solidified himself as the consensus candidate in the 2022 general election when he crushed former State Rep. Anthony Sabatini and garnered unprecedented support from every faction of the Republican Party.
Green’s campaign was all but dead on arrival, and not even her position within the state Democratic party could help rescue her anemic and fledgling congressional campaign.
Riding the expected Republican “Red Wave” in repudiation of the Biden administration and Democratic economic policies, Mills’ 59%-41% blowout win over Green flipped the Democratic-held seat vacated by Rep. Stephanie Murphy.
Moments after the polls close in both Volusia and Seminole Counties, Rep. Michael Waltz (R) introduced Congressman-elect Mills to Republican loyalists of the Volusia Republican Executive Committee in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Waltz pledged that he and his new "wingman" would champion Veteran's Affairs and stop the woke indoctrination of the U.S. Military and its supporting academies.
During his acceptance speech at his campaign victory party in Lake Mary, Florida, Mills touched on all of the hot topic issues important to the base of the Republican Party.
