Help is on the way to Florida’s 67 Supervisors of Elections to ensure the coming elections are secure. Last years they collectively had to return $1.4 million meant to enhance election security back to the state, but as Jake Stofan tells us the Governor says they’ll get a second chance to spend the cash, with some extra.

The Governors says he’ll ask for additional funds in his 2020 Budget Request if any vulnerabilities are identified throughout the review.
Elections Security PACKAGE
On May 22, the Governor Ron DeSantis ordered the Secretary of State to come up with a plan to ensure the state and counties’ election systems were secure.
Now the Governor says the plan is moving forward.
SOT: Governor Ron DeSantis
(R) Florida
“The plan will first asses the security of Florida’s elections systems and identify any vulnerabilities. If vulnerabilities are identified the will be addressed.”
Last year, $19.2 million was made available to the state’s Supervisors of Elections to enhance election security, but not all of the money was spent.
$1.4 million had to be returned to the state.
SOT Governor Ron DeSantis
(R) Florida
“I am redistributing $2.3 million… to Supervisors of Elections to ensure the safest most up to date modifications are made to our infrastructure.”
The announcement comes after it was revealed two Florida counties’ election systems were hacked in 2016.
SOT Laurel Lee
Florida Secretary of State
“The Department of State will ensure that no county stands alone against foreign threats to Florida’s elections.”
The money will go to back to the counties that were unable to spend their share in 2018.
Jake
“One of the reasons the cash went unspent was because the state attached a lot of strings to how it could be spent. Under this administration, that won’t happen.”
SOT Governor Ron DeSantis
(R) Florida
“I don’t want to grind this process to a halt because you’ve got to dot a hundred different I’s and cross a hundred different T’s.”
The $2.3 million will be added to another $2.8 million appropriated by the Legislature, giving supervisors another $5.1 million to share on security.

Jewish Voters Script:
Edius 1
On the eve of President Trump announcing his re-election plans here in Florida, a push is on to convince more Jewish voters to vote Republican, and as Mike Vasilinda tells us, The Governor’s recent trip to Israel could start tipping the balance toward the GOP and help the Presidents re-election campaign.

Anchor Tag: Flordia Jews make up about three and a half percent of Florida’s population, but account for about five percent of all registered voters in the state.
Jewish Voters Package Script:
Becoming Governor was a race Ron Desantis won by just over 32,000 votes. In Florida, Jewish voters are about 5 percent of the electorate. A 2018 CNN exit poll found 19 percent of jews voting, voted GOP. That is more than double DeSantis’s victory margin.
So will the Governor’s trip to Israel pay future political dividends?
Sot: Mort Klein
Pres. Zionist Organization of America.
“Governor DeSantis, as  a Congressman, was the greatest friend supporting US Israel relationships in the United States.”
Mort Klein is the National President of the Zionist Organization of America. He was in Israel with the Governor.
Sot: Mort Klein
Pres. Zionist Organization of America.
“Republicans have become much stronger supporters of US, Israeli relations than Democrats. That wan’t true twenty or thirty years ago.”
Also on the trip, State Representative Fine, the only Jewish Republicans in the state legislature.
Sot: Rep. Randy Fine
R-Brevard County
In many corners of the other side, being an anti semite is seen as some sort of a badge of honor, and that’s not okay.”
While waiting for the Governor at the Western Wall in Jerusalem we met two Miami men. Both Jewish, both voted for DeSantis.
Sot: Sot: Yechiel Cinert
Jewish GOP Voter
“The Republican Party has morphed into you know, this Pro Israel party, right, even more so that the Democratic Party, which I think, you know, hasn’t fallen on deaf ears.”
0:45-0:50 Sot: Joseph Leuchter
Jewish GOP Voter
“Also there’s a latent, there’s Anti-Semitic elements in the Democratic Party.”
Sot: Ron DeSantis
Governor
“I have a lot of Republicans come to me and say , my gosh, how can any Jews vote or vote for a Democrat given Israel, but I think that’s very simplistic to view Jewish voters that way.”
Mike Vasilinda Standup:
”Big elections here in Flordia are decided by less than one percent. So any movement in Jewish voters can have a big impact.”
And its not an accident the President begins his reelection campaign in the biggest swing state where its governor is Israels best friend.
VO/SOT: De Santis on Trump Campaign
Governor Ron DeSantis will be in Orlando tomorrow (Tuesday) for President Trump’s re-election campaign kickoff, but he told reporters today that he’ll be doing his job as Governor rather than being a Trump surrogate on the stump every day of the campaign.
Sot: Ron Desantis
Governor
“I’m probably not going to be that involved. I mean, I’ll go to this, and if the President needs me, but as for every single day, following this news or that news of the Democrats, I mean. I got a job to do so I’m going to be focusing on that. But I do appreciate you know, what the President has done to help Floridians. Particularly the one’s that have been in need in Northwest Florida.”
DeSantis was endorsed early in the 2018 campaign by President Trump and it immediately gave him front runner status.
