With the midterm elections, less than a month away, scores of politicians from both sides of the political aisle have been popping up throughout the affected area.

There is no resting in politics, and candidates can’t let a crisis go to waste.

President Trump, who has already signed off on an aggressive recovery plan, is scheduled to survey the damage along the panhandle, and will most likely visit Mexico Beach, the beach town that was absolutely leveled by the storm.

Florida Governor Rick Scott, Senator Bill Nelson, and members of Congress like Al Lawson (D) have all been on the ground and have provided assistance and emotional support.

Lawson, whose congressional district was hit by the storm,  stood alongside Scott in Greta, Florida, hosting a community meeting with state and federal officials to give residents updates on recovery efforts.

“It’s going to take all of us, on every level, to ensure families have the resources they need to rebuild our communities.”- Rep. Al Lawson
