Sunburn — The Morning Read Of What’s Hot In Florida Politics — 6.15.22

By Peter Schorsch   

Good Wednesday morning.

Welcome to the world — Evangeline Lynne Nungesser, daughter of the brilliant Natalie Kato and Tim Nungesser, was born yesterday at 2:41 p.m. I’m told mom and baby are doing well. Baby Evie will hang in the NICU briefly to put on a little weight.

— SITUATIONAL AWARENESS —

@SpectatorIndex: BREAKING: The World Health Organization says it is working on a new name for monkeypox

@DavidAxelrod: The question is, and will be raised throughout these hearings, does it matter? In deeply polarized times, when 70 percent of Republicans accept a blatant lie that the election was stolen, will minds be changed by evidence? Right now, (DonaldTrump remains ’24 @GOP front-runner.

@EliKlein: On Sunday, Ron DeSantis gave a speech here in NYC. Democrats banded together to protest that the venue was allowing DeSantis to come talk. When I was growing up in NYC, my liberal family would not have even considered that speakers be banned. I feel like the left is in a free fall.

@Leonardkl: Gov. DeSantis, who is 43, still has over $21,000 in student loans. He doesn’t trade individual stocks. His net worth is $318,987, far lower than many top politicians and if he runs for President, he may clock in at the lowest net worth in a crowded field.

@Jenny122: With both @AnnaForFlorida AND @CarlosGSmith endorsing @CharlieCrist I’m going to have to trust that he’s not as terrible as I thought. Changed my voting plan!

@MDixon55: Sounds like if a @GovRonDeSantis endorsement for (JasonFischer’s property appraiser race didn’t come today, a DeSantis endorsement for @AaronPBean’s congressional race was coming in a few days. A plank walk disguised as a choice, ya know

@Scott_Maxwell: Interesting move for an attorney general. Three people — including 1 who worked directly for (JasonBrodeur — were charged just last month with committing crimes in his race. The cases still pending. More may come. And Florida’s top law-enforcement official jumps in to endorse.

@JonHeyman: The pitch clock is a big success on an experimental basis in the minors. Games w/o pitch timers r averaging 2:59, games w/pitch timers 2:35, MLB is reporting now at the owners’ meetings. There’s been only 0.6 violations per game. MLB hopes to implement clocks in majors next year.
