TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (CAPITOL NEWS SERVICE) - Florida Surgeon General Doctor Joseph Ladapo has moved closer to Senate confirmation after a contentious hearing Wednesday at the state capitol.
According to the Associated Press, Democrats accused Doctor Ladapo of evading questions they had on coronavirus policies.
Democrats stormed out of the meeting before a final vote was cast, leaving only GOP lawmakers to vote.
Earlier today, Governor DeSantis praised Ladapo for being right on mask and vaccine issues and said Florida is safer for his leadership.
