Florida has long struggled to take the lead in the State Most Hostile To Public Education contest, with North Carolina, Wisconsin and Nevada giving some real competition.

Florida GOP Sees Very Good Year For GOP In 2018

For all the anger and energy apparent among Democrats in Florida since Trump's election, the state's political elites so far expect 2018 to be, yet again, a strong year for Republican candidates.
------------------------------
"Any frustrations with Trump that should benefit Democrats is dwarfed by a messageless, Democrat Party in chaos. Hugely, big midterm victories ahead for Republicans," said one Republican. here
