Miami-Dade County Flips Red in Crucial Voter Re-alignment Post-Midterm Elections
In 2002, Jeb Bush won Miami-Dade County in the Gubernatorial Race against then opposition, Bill McBride. In 2016, Hillary Clinton won Miami-Dade by a whopping 30 points. In 2020, President Joe Biden won Miami-Dade County by only seven points and now, only two years later, the county flipped altogether.

They can either redouble their efforts in Florida and attempt to win back the once reliable Miami-Dade County, or they can turn their attention elsewhere.communitynewspapers.com
