Tallahassee, FL — The Florida Democratic Party would like to pose two questions for Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio, Governor Ron DeSantis, and Florida’s elected Republican leaders. 

  1. When will you recognize Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the President-elect and Vice-President-elect of the United States?
  2. When will you begin conversations with the Biden transition team to ensure a smooth transition of power and continuity in vaccine rollout and stimulus packages that will be a part of the Biden administration?

In addition to these two questions that Floridians would like answered from our US Senators, Governor, and elected leaders, Terrie Rizzo, Chair of the Florida Democratic Party, has issued the following statement due to the failure of Senator Rick Scott, Senator Marco Rubio, Governor Ron DeSantis, and Florida Republicans to recognize President-elect Joe Biden as the next President of the United States following yesterday’s electoral college vote: 
“It is well past time for Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio and Governor DeSantis to recognize Joe Biden as the rightful President-elect of the United States. The Electoral College voted yesterday and Joe Biden received 306 votes, a decisive victory. So it is time to stop playing games with our democracy, recognize President-elect, and partner with President-elect Joe Biden to focus on what matters — helping Floridians through this pandemic.”
