It’s happening one day after the state reported a significant increase in the number of new infections and fatalities … but it may have been a glitch.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— Donald Trump Jr. hits the road in Florida, kicking off a bus tour against “socialism, communism, and radicals" (you know ... Democrats). It’s called the “fighters against socialism” tour and Ultimate Fighting Championship star Jorge Masvidal introduced Junior by saying something really “classy.”
— More on Don Jr.’s spiel on the Sunrise Soapbox.
— Gov. Ron DeSantis showed up in Calhoun County with a big check from the feds to help rebuild the only hospital in the area, which Hurricane Michael wrecked.
— Also, a deep dive into the Governor’s latest visit to the Panhandle to deal with the aftermath of Michael. It’s been two years and they’re still rebuilding. But Florida was lucky over the weekend when Hurricane Delta missed us completely — and DeSantis tempted fate by suggesting we may get out of this hurricane season without more damage.
— And finally, a Florida Man is going to federal prison for an investment he peddled on Shark Tank.
