DeSantis and Fried Agree on Something!

JUICE—Sound the alarms! There appears to be a breakthrough moment between Gov. Ron DeSantis and Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried.

While Commissioner Fried and Gov. DeSantis do not appear to agree on just about anything these days (ever), it appears as if keeping the steady flow of government-issued Monoclonal antibody treatment is the one thing both politicians agree on.

Fried recently penned a letter to the Biden administration urging them not to cut Monoclonal treatments, echoing DeSantis’s actions. DeSantis said that he has already spoken to another Monoclonal manufacturer about supplying Florida if Biden decides to pull the plug on future shipments of the treatments.   READ MORE

Look What I found

Democratic State Rep. Michael Greico believes he may have found an archive from the old “Cocaine Cowboy” days, or a recently lost package of some form of illicit drug. During one of his customary beach clean-ups, Rep. Greico posted an image of a package he found in the sand.

Chances are that it wasn’t a leftover prop from film crews during the filming of the iconic movie “Scareface.”

Rep. Anna V. Eskamani -The # of people traveling out of Texas to access an abortion illustrate what experts predicted well before the ban took into effect. Those who want to end a pregnancy are doing their best to travel beyond state borders. Some are succeeding. Many are not.

Florida’s families are currently missing out on $375/month. Thanks Rep. @AngieNixon for leading this charge!

Office of Representative Kevin Chambliss-Started my Saturday morning off the right way, at the Honorary Designation Ceremony renaming parts of the Dixie Highway after Harriet Tubman. I am very proud to have been involved in this effort and am extremely thankful to all the elected officials who helped make this happen.

SpencerRoach-The Senate parliamentarian ruled against allowing Democrats to include a pathway to legal status for an estimated 8 million undocumented immigrants in their massive social spending plan.

Rep. Bobby DuBose=Those who have worked around the clock to keep our schools, hospitals, vaccination sites, & medical facilities safe & clean during this pandemic deserve the power of having a strong voice to dictate their working conditions and their wages.

Congresswoman Kat Cammack-We still have Americans stranded in Afghanistan. The news cycle continues to move on, but there are American citizens stuck behind enemy lines. While the Biden administration focuses on other things, we won’t forget. It’s time to bring every American home.
