Moments ago, @GovRonDeSantis let someone stand behind the Seal of Florida and say: "The vaccine changes your RNA."

It does not. No corrections. No shame.

Facts here:…)
This misinformation press conference is also posted on @Facebook. Assuming it will get flagged soon.…
Statewide elected officials @JimmyPatronis and @AshleyMoodyFL were also there. I know they see my tweets.

Will either one of you put out a statement or tweet correcting this misinformation at your press conference?
Appreciate all the RTs and follows. It's not easy being a Floridian right now, but I'm doing everything I can to shine a light and fix the problems.
For those of you asking for the whole clip it's linked in this thread. Or you can watch it on here via @NumbersMuncher.

Wrap up of this mess of a press conference, via @lmower3.…
Update. @GovRonDeSantis doesn’t even remember this from yesterday!

(He says)

Thanks @MarcACaputo for asking.…

Time for a little breakdown on Florida mail and early voting numbers, if you're into that.
First, here is a .gif of the first 4,771,956 votes cast here including when and where voters have been voting.

Breaks down like this:

DEM: 2,110,366
GOP: 1,682,849
N/3/I: 978,741
Now the obvious.

@FlaDems's being up by 427,517 votes right now is still so shocking and unprecedented. It's just never worked like this here. In 2016, this far from Election Day, Republicans were up by 15,280 after 2,870,211 votes.

I'll let you do the math on that...

We’ve got a fairly conservative internal model for how we think NPA voters may be splitting in Florida.

Any interest in those numbers?
You sure?

Same model predicted Clinton +1.09 in 2016. Of course, we've refined it since then. And our 2016 prediction was a lot closer than most.

Still sure?
We've got Florida's NPA's splitting:

@JoeBiden: 308,446 (49.8%)
@realDonaldTrump: 291,293 (47%)
Other: 19,859 (3.2%)
(through 10/19/20)

Now get back to work, please.
This means nothing.

Saw Trump is still airing the Dr. Fauci ad, despite Dr. Fauci's objections. Per usual, it's basically all stock footage with actors. Drop a like and I'll show you that, plus a heart warming ending. I promise it's worth it.
Here is the ad.
(I muted it for you, you're welcome).

It opens with some 1980's era "business closed" footage and includes some nondescript "medical research."

But let's focus on the "real people."

Like to keep it going and see where they bought it.
First up, we've got "mother with two children" via FILMPAC (not a political committee).

Hopefully they get a cut of that $49.

Like for the next one.
