In a press conference today in West Palm Beach Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said that flags will be lowered to half staff to honor Rush Limbaugh.
DeSantis said at a press conference, “I was getting the tar kicked out of me every day and he Rush had me on the week before the election in 2018. He didn’t have a lot of guests. I was honored to be on his show a couple of times.”
“I know they’re still figuring out the arrangements but what we do when there are things of this magnitude, once the date of internment for Rush is announced, we’re going to be lowering the flags to half-staff,” the governor said.
“There’s not much that needs to be said, the guy was an absolute legend,” DeSantis said. “He was a friend of mine and just a great person.”
Florida State Rep. Sabatini (R-FL) wrote a letter to Governor DeSantis (R-FL) asking for flags be lowered in honor of Rush Limbaugh earlier. Rep. Sabatini (R-FL) called Rush a “relentless champion of America and of civic engagement.”
