Pretty much this. Cuban-Americans & exiles (as well as Venezuelan-Americans & exiles & Nicaraguan-Americans & exiles) identified with DeSantis, as his message that Gillum is a socialist worked.

Yeah, the obvious answer is Cubans.

Cuban voters may not be voting Republican for President anymore, but they sure still vote R downballot.

In my humble opinion, we should wait until 2020 before making such predictions.

This. I think Cubans very well might come home in 2020; they seem to have warmed up to Trump.

If Hillary Clinton - Cubans. If Bill - a lot of "ancestral Democrats from Panhandle"......

Based on what? Has there been polling to substantiate this or is it just a gut feeling?

Also, while I do think it's plausible that Cubans will swing towards Trump if Sanders (especially) or Warren is the nominee, if it's Biden I highly doubt it. They will probably actually swing farther away from him, because Biden is a Catholic and will likely be seen as more moderate than Hillary; it will be very difficult for the GOP to paint him as a socialist, unlike Sanders.

Didn't Florida exit polls show Trump looking strong among Cubans last November?

Yeah. It seemed it wasn’t just anti-Trump Republican Cubans going back to vote for the GOP, it seems some actually warmed on him.

FL isn't a tipping point race, anymore and Putnam would have won, anyways, Gillum didn't meet expectations, that he was leading in the polls. Graham was the better candidate.

A couple of Jews maybe as well? I remember that Gillum was briefly under fire for Israel comments or his afflilation with certain anti-Israel groups. Not that it was at Omar levels, but I remember him being criticized for that.

The Jewish Press did endorse Ron DeSantis, for what it's worth.

Edit: Though that's irrelevant in the Senate race.

Thousands of Hispanic voters ( not just Cubans). Many Latinx groups.
