Cultist Defeats DeSantis Ally For Florida GOP Chair

Florida Politics reports:

Former President Donald Trump is taking a victory lap in the wake of Saturday’s vote for Republican Party of Florida Chair. Commenting on the victory of Christian Ziegler of Sarasota, the former President posted to Truth Social Sunday.

“We won a big Chairmanship in Florida over the DeSantis Reps, but actually, it’s a win for ALL. That’s the way we want it. Christian will be a great Chairman!”

Ziegler, a close ally of outgoing chair Joe Gruters, a state Senator also from Sarasota, faced and defeated Leon County GOP Chair Evan Power, a DeSantis ally, prevailing in a vote of 126-100 at the annual meeting held in Orlando.

Also that year as a Sarasota County Commissioner he awarded $825,000 to the far-right pro-Trump video platform Rumble, which then relocated from Canada to the area’s Longboat Key, home to one of its chief investors, Dan Bongino.
