It’s been a good couple of days for the sunshine state Governor as a newly released poll shows that he’s better-liked and better known among Puerto Ricans, which he says he will continue to help as they look to recover after the effects of Hurricane Irma.

The release explained that “Since 2013, Governor Scott has awarded more than 14,000 veterans with the Governor’s Veterans Service Medal for their service to the state and the nation.”
