Florida is and always has been a mixed bag in terms of politics.
While it is generally a “red” state in major elections, it is much like Texas in that it has a lot of liberal pockets that are uber-liberal.
This was never more apparent than during this pandemic, where Governor Ron DeSantis openly stated arresting people for COVID crimes was not the solution (he did this in September), yet some local counties issued and enforced extreme penalties for violations.
In one case, a couple was being threatened with some very serious jail time after having been arrested for not wearing masks while exercising.
Governor Santis gave them the relief of a lifetime by announcing that he will not only issue a pardon for this couple but also for everyone charged with a COVID crime during the pandemic.

Well done, Governor, and we can only hope more Republican governors follow your example and do the same.
