About this Episode

Now the Florida Senate has decided to uphold Ron DeSantis’ suspension of the Broward County Sheriff, local officials statewide — especially sheriffs — are beginning to realize there is a major shift in the political landscape. You don’t have to commit a crime for the Governor to suspend you.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— A new law in California allowing college athletes to make money off their own name and likeness has inspired a similar proposal in Florida, getting the support of the Governor.

— State attorneys are teaming up with Larry Keefe, the federal prosecutor for the Northern District of Florida, to concentrate on two areas: drugs and guns. But Keefe says he won’t be prosecuting anyone for using medical marijuana.

— A new University of North Florida poll puts DeSantis’ popularity at 72 percent, the highest in 10 years.

— More Florida Man shenanigans: A man in Pinellas Park had sex with two toys in a Target, including a unicorn and one of Olaf from “Frozen.”
