The 2022 Mid-Term elections are fast approaching with important races up and down the ballot.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has garnered the national spotlight and has focused his campaign on many issues that have made him a possible frontrunner for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.
DeSantis has appeared frequently on television to discuss recovery efforts, while the hurricane caused other candidates, including challenger Charlie Crist, to temporarily dial back campaigning.
DeSantis has led in polls throughout the campaign and has a huge fundraising advantage over Crist.
Crist and other Democrats have focused heavily in recent months on abortion rights, after the U.S. Supreme Court in June overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.
Florida voters will determine who the next Florida governor will be and who will fill the other four highest offices in the state.
Incumbent Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) currently leads in the polls against his Democratic challenger Charlie Crist.
