Despite whatever nonsense Kathy Griffin is spewing, this Navy SEAL-turned-congressman has become governor-elect of America's largest swing state. 

Being able to rely on a friendly governor's GOTV operation is invaluable for President Trump's re-election. 

Moreover, DeSantis will help guide the redistricting process in Florida come 2021. 

Finally, he beat Andrew Gillum. Despite being under FBI scrutiny, the telegenic mayor of Tallahassee had consistently lead in the polls, thanks to an influx of out-of-state cash and fawning media coverage.

Last minute rallies by President Trump may have made the difference.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, DeSantis won by 0.6 percentage points.
