About this Episode

In Florida, the number of COVID-19 cases is creeping up. Gov. Ron DeSantis gives an update and some advice on the use of surgical masks. Rep. Chip LaMarca talks about how Florida ports are dealing with the threat of coronavirus.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— After her husband kicked butt on Super Tuesday, Jill Biden is coming to Florida. She’ll be making stops in Orlando and Miami.

— The House votes to step up efforts to subpoena Tiffany Carr, so they can grill the former boss of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence about her $7 million payday.

— Senate approves a resolution that condemns groups that espouse superiority over other people because of race, nationality or gender.

— Senators also approved a separate bill on the Ocoee Election Day Race Riot of 1920. Whites were so outraged that a black millionaire was getting people to the polls they lynched him, massacred 60 African Americans, burned down the black section of Ocoee and stole their land — all with the help of state officials.

— A special version of Florida Man, featuring the Congressman who wore a gas mask on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.
