Here’s a list of DeSantis-backed school board candidates who won election night

Gov. Ron DeSantis backed a group of 30 school board candidates prior to Tuesday’s election primaries. With nearly all precincts reporting their votes in these races as of 10 p.m. Tuesday, at least 19 of those candidates seem likely to win.

With school board races, in any race with three or more candidates, a candidate must get 50% of the vote plus one vote in order to win the race outright. Otherwise, the top two vote-getters advance to a runoff in November.
