Candidates backed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) successfully flipped control of the Miami Dade school board to Republican hands over controversy over race and gender studies.
Monica Colucci and Roberto Alonso were also backed by the 1776 Project PAC, which was formed to combat the implementation of critical race theory in local public school curricula.
“Both of our candidates in Miami Dade County, Florida just WON their elections, flipping the school board conservative. Miami Dade is now the LARGEST county in America with a conservative school board majority,” read a tweet from the 1776 PAC.
“As the next School Board member for District 8, I will keep woke ideologies out of the classroom, ensure curriculum transparency, and defend parental rights,” said Colucci.
