A Florida newspaper is begging Gov. Ron DeSantis to stop his travel for photo ops designed to raise his profile in advance of the 2024 presidential election and to focus on surging COVID-19 in his state.

“To save lives, he must start acting like Florida’s governor and less like he’s auditioning for Turning Point USA or Texas Gov. Greg Abbott or whatever Fox News host comes calling. The governor needs to launch another vaccination tour, like the one he did earlier this year that helped get a big chunk of Florida’s senior population protected. DeSantis and his surrogates are constantly reminding us of his success with senior vaccinations. Why not come to the aid of other Floridians now?” the Orlando Sentinel pleaded in an op-ed.

DeSantis has spent the last few days jet-setting to right-wing conferences, bashing Dr. Anthony Fauci, and posing for photos at the Texas-Mexico border.

At the same time, positive COVID tests in Florida have increased 200% as the virus surges among the unvaccinated.
