Biden praises Rick Scott after DeSantis snub: ‘I want to thank the senator’

  • Florida Governor Ron DeSantis did not meet with President Joe Biden during Biden's visit to Florida to survey the damage caused by Hurricane Idalia. DeSantis's office stated that a meeting would divert resources from recovery efforts. The White House claimed that the meeting had been planned and that DeSantis was welcome to join. DeSantis is a potential candidate for the 2024 Republican nomination for president.
  • Despite the lack of a meeting, Senator Rick Scott, a Republican and former governor of Florida, praised Biden's response to Idalia and expressed appreciation for the federal government's assistance. Biden also commended Scott for his cooperation and recognized the work of FEMA.
  • Biden stated that DeSantis helped plan the visit and that they were in frequent communication, even without a face-to-face meeting. Biden participated in a briefing with Scott, toured storm damage, and discussed recovery efforts. At least two deaths were reported as a result of Idalia, with around 278,000 residents losing power.
