Gov. DeSantis Won't Send Florida Guard for Biden's State of the Union
Hundreds of National Guard troops have been activated to be in the nation's capital Tuesday to provide security during President Joe Biden's first State of the Union address, but Florida's Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis said Monday that members of the Florida National Guard will not be among them.
"Last week, the Biden administration requested the assistance of State National Guards to deploy to Washington, D.C.," DeSantis posted on Twitter. "I have rejected this request — there will be no @FLGuard sent to D.C. for Biden's State of the Union."
