DNC Statement on Governor Ron DeSantis’ Lawsuit Supporting COVID

Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced that Florida filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration over vaccine requirements. DNC spokesperson Adonna Biel released the following statement: 

“You absolutely cannot make this up: For months, we’ve been saying DeSantis stands on the side of the pandemic and now he is literally suing in favor of prolonging the COVID-19 pandemic. Ron DeSantis is a sad excuse of a governor and he has repeatedly taken steps he thinks will further his political prospects, but in reality, he’s sold out his state and cost thousands of Floridians their lives. His reckless approach to COVID-19 has made it crystal clear Florida deserves better than DeSantis and his dangerous governing.”
