While laying out his election integrity proposals, Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) did mention that flags will be lowered for Rush Limbaugh following his death Wednesday from his long battle of lung cancer. Rush lived in West Palm Beach (where the press conference was held today) from 1996 to his death.
DeSantis said, “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.”
This comes as Florida State Rep. Sabatini (R-FL) wrote a letter to Governor DeSantis (R-FL) asking for him to order all flags be lowered in honor of Rush Limbaugh. Rep. Sabatini (R-FL) called Rush a “relentless champion of America and of civic engagement.”

Many will say that Governor DeSantis is making the right decision by choosing to honor the beloved icon for those on the right by recognizing his contributions to the conservative movement and talk radio. DeSantis praised Limbaugh on Twitter following his passing.
Governor DeSantis (R-FL) is once again showing strong leadership and making Florida the place to be for conservatives.
