Florida’s Department of Health reports 131 new fatalities from COVID-19. Four of the victims were from out of state, the rest were Florida residents.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— Donald Trump will be at the Orlando Sanford International Airport for another Make America Great Again campaign rally. Florida GOP Chair Joe Gruters says Florida is a must-win state for Trump. You’ll hear more from Sen. Gruters.
— Democrats are still grumbling over Trump’s behavior during the first presidential debate, and Jewish members of Florida’s congressional delegation are infuriated over his refusal to denounce White supremacy after being asked directly.
— With the election little more than a month away, progressive groups say they’ll make every effort to make sure people get the chance to vote.
— Congressman Darren Soto has a bone to pick with FEMA. He wants them to explain why billions of dollars appropriated by Congress three years ago to help Puerto Rico recover from Hurricane Maria has yet to arrive.
— And it’s not just FEMA. Private insurance companies are also stiffing their policyholders in Puerto Rico to the tune of $1.6 billion.
— And finally, a Florida man went to jail over milk, while a Florida Woman was arrested after asking a deputy if he wanted to smoke pot with her.
