NBC News reports:
Gov. Ron DeSantis has been missing in action as Covid cases in the state have spiked to new heights, Florida Democratic officials charge. “Counties are overwhelmed w/ lines that stretch for miles,” state Sen. Shevrin Jones, a Democrat, tweeted Thursday. “It’s every man/woman for themselves, because leadership is MIA,” he added.
DeSantis, a Republican and outspoken opponent of vaccine and mask mandates, last held a Covid press briefing on Dec. 17.
His press secretary, Christina Pushaw, tweeted Thursday that the governor has “a wife and 3 kids ages 1-5, and 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. I don’t criticize (President Joe) Biden for going to Rehoboth Beach all week, right?”

No public appearances in 12 days for a guy who can’t go a few hours without a press conference, stunt, Fox interview, Bongino interview or some other Q event or call
