Covid cases in Florida - like many other US states - are currently soaring.
Now some people are asking: Where’s the governor?
The hashtag #WhereIsRon began trending on Friday as some accused him of going missing. State senator Shevrin Jones tweeted: “Counties are overwhelmed w/ lines that stretch for miles, @GovRonDeSantis said FL will not open state-run testing sites… It’s every man/woman for themselves because leadership is missing in action.”
DeSantis last spoke to the media about the virus on December 17, and the chatter over his whereabouts escalated after a recent images posted to his Twitter account were images taken days ago. Indy100 reached out to DeSantis’ office for comment.
His office has, however, shared official schedules showing meetings he’s attended over the past few days, and his spokesperson Christina Pushaw tweeted that as a family man “it’s not surprising if he wants to take a few days off at Christmas to spend time with his family, especially as his wife is battling cancer.”
