The Florida state Senate confirmed Gov. Ron DeSantis’ pick for surgeon general, Joseph A. Ladapo, who has vocally opposed mask mandates in schools, saying that data does not support such restrictions.
When I’m traveling across Florida, I’ve heard one thing more than anything else: Floridians want a Senator who shows up—even when we might not agree.
Send me to the Senate and I won’t forget where I came from.

Florida is on an anti-LGBTQ+ roll today.
The “Don’t Say Gay or Trans” bill is reprehensible and a blatant attempt to erase LGBTQ+ people from society. The Florida Senate must vote against this legislation for what it is — an attack on our community. https://t.co/UPCckwilHB
