At a press conference on Tuesday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said, “We just want to send a message: Some may want to shut you down; we want to pull you up,” he said. “We’ve got your back.”
“If you’re somebody who’s a waitress or a cook or you’re a family-owned business, you’re an important part of our state,” DeSantis said. “You’re working folks, who are working hard to make a living; you have every right to do that. You can take it to the bank in the state of Florida; you’re going to have that right defended by the governor.”
DeSantis made clear — Florida is open for business.
