candidates supports Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has successfully handed control of the Miami Dade school board to the Republican handover of the race and gender studies controversy.

Monica Colucci and Roberto Alonso were also supported by Project PAC of 1776, founded to oppose the introduction of critical race theory into local public school curricula.

“Our two candidates in Miami Dade County, Fla. just WON their elections and flipped the school board in a conservative way tweet from the 1776 PAC.

“As the next school board member for District 8, I will keep bright ideologies out of the classroom, ensure curriculum transparency, and defend parental rights.” said Colucci.

The PAC also celebrated turning over the school chalkboards Martin County Clay County, Sarasota County, and Duval County.

DeSantis sketched why he endorsed school board candidates in a statement to WKMG-TV as part of his Education Agenda Tour.

“These parent-friendly, student-friendly local school board candidates are committed to the DeSantis education agenda,” he said.

DeSantis is considered the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024, alongside former President Donald Trump, who has strongly hinted he might run again. The Florida governor infuriated many on the left when he passed the Parental Rights in Education Act , which restricted the inclusion of gender identity or sexual orientation in early public school curricula.

Victories on so many school boards solidify DeSantis’ political power ahead of the midterm elections.

“Today, our PAC helped move FIVE Florida school boards from majority Liberal to Conservative, including Miami Dade. We are removing leftist ideologies from our schools, one district at a time,” read a tweet from Project PAC of 1776.
