About this Episode

Gov. Ron DeSantis is keeping an eye on the floods created by Hurricane Sally.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— The Governor is in Pensacola today to check out the damage, including that missing chunk of the highway from the 3-mile bridge over Pensacola Bay.

— Florida’s list of casualties from COVID-19 increase by 154. That pushes the statewide death toll to 13,100.

— Former Attorney General Pam Bondi is touring the state on behalf of Donald Trump, trash-talking Joe Biden on corruption and nepotism.
She’ll be joined in Tampa today by Ivanka Trump, so she might not want to mention nepotism. And maybe steer clear of touchy subjects (like Trump’s response to COVID-19).

— The latest polls show Trump and Biden are pretty much tied in Florida. POLITICO’s Marc Caputo is covering the Biden campaign; he says the COVID crisis is helping the Democratic nominee by limiting his public appearances.
— Caputo’s interview is the first one in months that wasn’t done over the phone. He actually stopped by the studio.

— And finally, a Florida Woman who took part in an anti-mask protest at Target in South Florida.
