Florida governor Ron DeSantis is going to show the state’s pride in their long-time resident and talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh.
The State of Florida will lower their flags to half-staff to honor Rush Limbaugh’s memory.
“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Friday that flags will soon be lowered to half-staff for Rush Limbaugh,” WXTL in West Palm Beach reported.
The proposal was made by Florida Rep. Anthony Sabatini on Wednesday, when long-time Palm beach resident Rush Limbaugh passed away at age 70 after a bout with lung cancer.

“Mr. Limbaugh was a champion of the constitution, civic engagement, and a true American patriot,” he added.
Governor DeSantis will now honor that request, along with the memory of the late, great Rush Limbaugh.
