As Election Day draws near, a cavalcade of candidates is infesting Florida. Vice President Mike Pence braved the rain Saturday to spread the gospel of Donald Trump in Tallahassee.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— Pence spoke on the same day former President Barack Obama was campaigning for Joe Biden in Miami-Dade and accused Trump of behavior that puts “Florida Man” to shame.
— The former President spoke after the current President showed up at an early voting site to cast his ballot, trying to create more doubts about voting by mail. As you may have expected, Trump voted for himself.
— The Department of Health is reporting just 12 fatalities from COVID-19 Sunday, one of the lowest daily casualty counts on record. But remember: Weekend numbers are always low because of the way they’re reported. There’s been an increase in new COVID-19 cases with almost 2,400 in the past week ... but the governor won’t be reinstating any sort of health restrictions.
— There have now been more than 778,000 COVID-19 cases in the Sunshine State.
— And finally, two Florida Men stories: One called 911 to report tiny aliens, while the other covered himself in trash bags before setting fires that damaged or destroyed a dozen garbage trucks.
