Florida Democratic Party Chair On DeSantis Blocking Reporters from Press Briefing

March 28, 2020

Today, Governor Ron DeSantis excluded the Tampa Bay Times and Miami Herald joint Tallahassee bureau reporter from his press briefing after they requested social distancing measures to protect their staff. 

In response, Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement:

“We're in the middle of a pandemic and Governor Ron DeSantis is punishing reporters for requesting a safe work space. This move is straight out of Donald Trump’s playbook, and is not only in violation of the law, but ethically unacceptable. We call on the Governor to ensure this will never happen again -- and we thank the reporters tirelessly working to inform the public during this time of uncertainty.”
