Sunrise gives an update on election security in Florida. The Russians hacked into two county databases during the 2016 election, and the Secretary of State’s office is spending millions of dollars to try to prevent a recurrence in 2020. However, details of what exactly is being done are not forthcoming.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— Gov. Ron DeSantis says the upcoming Legislative Session could be better known as the Year of the Teacher. Teachers Hope it’s true — but after the way they’ve been treated in Tallahassee in the past couple of decades, they remain cautiously doubtful.
— Mega-attorney John Morgan’s $15 minimum wage constitutional amendment has cleared a major hurdle. They have enough signatures to make the ballot. But there’s still a way to go.
— It’s Halloween! While kids fill bags with candy, the real treat goes to retailers. The holiday for ghosts and ghouls is a major economic driver in the Sunshine State.
— More Florida Men madness: A Vero Beach man in a MAGA cap says the hat was slapped off his head by another man who proceeded to spit on him, saying: “You should go back to Russia, you f**ing communist.”
