The End

It's that time of the year. Happy Year!

The beginning of the 2024 Florida legislative session is less than two weeks away, and the writers at The Floridian are ready to tackle whatever Tallahassee throws at them.

The team has expanded and will have four members focused on the legislative process over the next couple of weeks.

Liv Caputo has signed on, joining Jackson Bakich, Mateo Guillamont, and myself to cover the Republican-led legislature and all of the antics that usually occur in the two months.

We will also continue our coverage of the 2024 Presidential primary election, regardless of how long it lasts.

Expect to see live reporting from both Iowa and New Hampshire in the coming weeks, as well as in South Carolina.

From our family to yours, Happy New Year!
