DeSantis speaks in the city hit by Hurricane Idalia a day after the President’s visit to Florida

YANKEETOWN, Fla. (WFLA) – Gov. Ron DeSantis holds a news conference at the Yankeetown Water Plant days after Hurricane Idalia made landfall in the Big Bend region.

DeSantis will be accompanied by the state’s Secretary of Commerce, Alex Kelly.

“As I told your governor, if your state needs anything, I stand ready to mobilize that support,” Joe Biden continued. “Everything you need in connection with these storms. “Your nation has your back and we will be by your side until the job is done.”
