Florida Republican Governor is under attack from critics. Ron DeSantis raised questions about his absence. But the governor revealed that he was there to care for Casey while she is undergoing recurring cancer treatments.
“Hasn’t Gov. DeSantis gone missing unprovoked for almost two weeks. If he’s around, I would be happy to say hello,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted last week from sunny South Florida.
