The Republican Party of Florida is expressing gratitude to Vice President Kamala Harris (D) this morning, but it's for reasons that might surprise voters. Republicans are thanking Vice President Harris because they argue that the vice president has delivered yet another county to Republicans. The Florida Republican Party announced this morning that "Madison County flipped from Democrat to Republican."

In early April, Republicans were registering gains over Democrats in different areas. Voter registration showed that Republicans had almost 900,000 more registered voters than Democrats, and both Hillsborough County and Madison County were on the way to flipping red.

The Florida GOP is now welcoming May with an additional county, which means that 57 out of Florida's 67 counties are Republican.

Sharing information from Heath Digger, the Madison County Supervisor of Elections, in a social media post, Florida's GOP commented that Vice President Harris' recent trip to Florida sealed the deal for Madison County to turn red.

"Kamala steps foot in Florida and another county turns RED!" the Florida GOP shared in a social media post.

"Maybe Kamala Harris can explain why Florida Democrats are fleeing Biden's failed policies. A once Blue state now has over 900,000 more registered Republicans than Democrats."

Vice President Harris is visiting the state to discuss abortion rights as a 6-week abortion ban takes effect. The Biden-Harris Administration believes that Florida is at play, and one topic that has come to the forefront of the administration and Democrats alike is abortion.

Polling shows that President Donald Trump (R) is surging in support over President Joe Biden (D), and while voters believe that President Trump is a stronger candidate when it comes to issues like inflation and the economy, voters do see President Biden as a stronger supporter on the topic of abortion.

Vice President Harris will be speaking at a campaign event in Jacksonville where she is expected to directly blame President Trump for the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade as well as the slew of abortion bans that have spread across the country.
