It looks like Gov. Ron DeSantis’ claim that the vaccine is a mere personal choice —without impact to others — is drawing rebuke from experts across the country, including Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Also on today’s Sunrise:
— Meanwhile, Broward and several other school districts have mounted a new legal challenge against the state’s mask mandate.
— DeSantis announced a three-part proposal to recruit law enforcement but took the opportunity to criticize those calling for police reform.
— That hit a nerve with groups like the Tallahassee Chapter of the NAACP saying it’s the Governor’s own rhetoric that’s making it hard to recruit those who want to serve.
— Imagine being a health care reporter during a pandemic, we hear from one who is looking ahead to 2022 Legislative Session. On the Sunrise Interview is Christine Sexton, a returning health care reporter for Florida Politics.
— Next, a dive into the law enforcement beat, where the Governor flexes his power to squash anyone calling to defund the police. However, groups like the NAACP argue the Governor’s rhetoric is a disservice to law enforcement.
