Prior to Florida’s lawsuit against the CDC, the organization shut down the cruise industry; they stated that cruises could not depart from Florida. The CDC also attempted to essentially implement a vaccine passport program into the cruise industry, despite the statewide ban against vaccine passports. However, a federal district court judge ultimately sided with Florida.
While speaking with Fox News Sunday, DeSantis noted that the CDC never had the authority to shut down the cruise industry, regardless of the excuses they used to justify it.
A bright future for Florida
Right now, Florida is the number one place to be in America. At least hundreds of people per day are traveling and relocating to the Sunshine State.
Likewise, DeSantis himself is gaining popularity for the success of his policies and decision-making. The Florida governor’s popularity has reached such impressive heights that many conservatives want him to run for president in 2024.
DeSantis, at this time, has not committed to (or ruled out) a 2024 presidential run.
