The nation’s political establishment has been shaken to its core after Donald Trump and the First Lady contracted COVID-19.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— The President spent the weekend at the Walter Reed Medical Center and hopes to return to the White House today. COVID-19 has breached his inner circle, with a who’s who of D.C. insiders now in quarantine.
— Many who attended the Rose Garden ceremony nine days ago where Trump introduced his latest Supreme Court nominee tested positive; it may turn out to be what’s known as a “super-spreader” event. It could also be a problem in Florida, where the Governor is counting on the new Abbott rapid test to screen visitors at nursing homes to protect elderly residents from infection.
— Ron DeSantis hailed the rapid test as a game-changer in the fight against COVID 19 … but people who attended the Rose Garden ceremony were administered rapid tests and that didn’t stop the virus. Sunrise talks with our in-house pollster and political pundit Steve Vancore to get his take on how this will affect the presidential race.
— Schools are reopening today in Miami-Dade and Broward. They didn’t want to do it this soon, but the Governor and the Education Commissioner were threatening to mess with their money if they didn’t.
— And finally, checking-in with a Florida Man who requested a mail-in ballot for his wife … who’s been dead for two years.
