— While the Governor tries to minimize fears, Democrats in the state’s Congressional delegation are sounding the alarm.
— Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Lois Frankel, Ted Deutch and Donna Shalala are asking DeSantis to step up his game against COVID-19.
— Checking-in with two Florida Men who have taken an interest in animals: One ended up in the hospital after encountering an iguana, and the other is planning an X-rated movie about Carole Baskin and the Tiger King.
