Florida reached another milestone in the fight against COVID-19, with more than 15,000 fatalities in the Sunshine State. Dr. Kitonga Kiminyo is an infectious disease specialist from Palm Beach County; he says we’re nowhere near the end of this.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— The Florida Department of Health reported 139 additional fatalities from COVID-19 Wednesday and more than 2,500 new cases.
— Last night was the first (and only) debate between the vice-presidential candidates; Florida Democrats were lining up to attack Mike Pence before it even started.
— South Florida Democrats are also piling on the President for saying he won’t talk about another coronavirus relief package until after the election, then apparently reversing himself during a tweetstorm.
— Miami Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson also has a new way to describe Donald Trump — the “freeloader-in-chief.”
— Former Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp talks about facing the Florida Supreme Court to represent one of the groups suing over Florida’s medical marijuana law. He began by paraphrasing Shakespeare.
— And finally, a Florida Man who ended up in jail after firing his AR-15 assault rifle when the census taker came calling.
