Would you believe there’s actually much more going on with this headline than The Hill would have you believe? Shocking, we know:

The “mayor” here is actually the mayor of all of Orange County (how Florida does things) and his name is Jerry Demings:

Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings (D) during a press conference said counties have not received funding from the state for COVID-19 testing and questioned why DeSantis has been largely absent as the omicron variant has quickly become the dominant strain in Florida.

“We have not received any assistance from the state of Florida at our testing sites,” he said.

And Mayor Demings is the husband of Dem Rep. Val Demings, who just happens to be running to unseat Sen. Marco Rubio in 2022:

It’s funny that these Dems keep going after DeSantis when THEIR guy is on the beach with his puppy:

As of this post, all three drive-up testing sites in Orange County are closed on Friday and Saturday. Is this DeSantis’ fault, too?

For comparison purposes, Miami-Dade County is running five 24-hour testing sites:

And some sites are open Friday and Saturday:

And, again, at the time of this post, one could make an appointment at walk-up sites and avoid lines altogether:

Why can’t Orange County at least copy what’s being done in Miami-Dade?
