Florida Governor Ron DeSantis ripped Democratic leaders across the country this week; saying the only reason schools remain closed is because of far-left legislators bowing to the demands of education unions.
“Florida schools are open, and every parent has the right to send their kids to school for in-person instruction. Those who insist on keeping the schoolhouse doors closed are ignoring evidence and placing special interests ahead of the best interests of children and families,” posted DeSantis on Twitter.
“Florida schools are open for in-person instruction,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said Monday. “Every single parent in this state has a right to send their kid to in-person instruction. We have done it the right way. We are not going to turn back.”

“It does not require another $100 billion. If you want to open schools, open them. Open the doors. Let them come in and let them learn. The only reason that’s not happening across the country is because the Democratic Party puts the interest of education unions ahead of the well-being of our children,” he added.

.@GovRonDeSantis says he ordered the National Guard to come home from the U.S. Capitol because "they're not Nancy Pelosi's servants" and "this is a half-cocked mission at this point and I think the appropriate thing is to bring them home."

DeSANTIS on HANNITY: How Florida Handled Coronavirus Without Draconian Lockdown Orders
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis spoke with Sean Hannity Tuesday night on his state’s efforts to protect the elderly during the Coronavirus outbreak; saying local officials were “pro-active” in saving the most vulnerable residents.
“The fatality rate at Florida’s long-term care facilities were drastically lower than New York. Now the state has a plan to safely re-open for business. The predictions for Florida were off the charts. They attacked you… How did you do it?” asked Hannity.
“We really focused. We knew where the threats were. We made sure we had teams going there, trying to work on that. If the virus gets into those facilities, it can run rampant,” said DeSantis.
“It’s a very difficult problem, but we were pro-active,” he added.
