Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) flatly rejected Sen. Rick Scott’s (R-FL) “call for governors and mayors to return money from the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, creating another fault line with his potential 2024 rival,” Politico reports.
Said DeSantis: “It doesn’t make any sense. If Florida were to send the money back, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is going to send it to Illinois, California, New York or New Jersey. I don’t think that would make sense for Floridians — for us to be giving even more money to the blue states that are already getting such a big windfall in this bill.”
