Good Wednesday morning.

What was supposed to be America’s “hot vax summer” barely made it through July. The delta variant of COVID-19 is roaring back — in Florida and across the country — forcing The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to backtrack on its mask recommendations for vaccinated people.

But vaxxed versus unvaxxed is just one of many conflicts, disputes, and outright battles we face in Florida.

Nevertheless, it is that yin-and-yang that makes Florida politics so damn exciting.

Through all this, Peter is working overtime as a loving and dutiful caretaker (and chief bedpan wrangler) to his recovering wife, Michelle. The staff of Florida Politics wish her a speedy recovery; we are all lucky to have such a compassionate individual at our helm.

Yes, it may be a long journey ahead, but at least they are on the right road.

Sunburn is also taking a short breather; we will be back Friday morning. Thank you all for your readership and support.

That said, let’s start our morning with a handful of shots-and-chasers for a little context:

Chaser: We hear Robert Blackmon has brought in top consultants Jim Rimes and Nick Hansen to see him through the final weeks of the campaign. Can they quarterback him to the same level of upset that happened in 2010 when then-unknown Jeff Brandes knocked off Bill ‘Santa Claus’ Heller?

@Coo_Ray: I’m an Arkansas ER physician. We are at the point warned about a year ago. There are no ICU beds in the state. 4 days ago, we called 5 surrounding states looking for ICU beds, and we were unsuccessful.

@KevinCate: Did not expect to have to send my daughter to middle school orientation in a mask. It hurts my heart so much.
