FEDERAL help that is….
In a state where the motto is ‘Your on Your Own’…..
GOP Florida Gov. DeSantis is gonna have to eat a shit sandwich and take the money…..
(DeSantis was against Fedewral money going to New Jersey and New York after Hurricane Sandy)
He even might have to have to have a photo op with the Democratic President….
President Joe Biden toured storm damage on Wednesday in hurricane-ravaged Fort Myers, Fla., ahead of a highly-anticipated meeting with Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Florida is reeling from the impacts of Hurricane Ian, which made landfall as a Category 4 storm along the state’s gulf coast last week and has caused mass devastation and flooding across the state. It has killed at least 72 people — with the death count still expected to rise as search and rescue efforts continue — and left some beachside communities leveled and buildings reduced to rubble.
The president, along with first lady Jill Biden, will survey the damage on Florida’s west coast via helicopter before touching down in Fisherman’s Wharf in Fort Myers. DeSantis, along with federal and local officials, will then brief Biden on disaster recovery efforts.
