On Friday’s program, we discussed President Donald Trump’s decision to cancel the Jacksonville component of the Republican National Convention.

WJCT News Reporter Sky Lebron, who has been covering the Jacksonville RNC planning process, joined us.

We also took a closer look at how Gov. Ron DeSantis has been handling the coronavirus pandemic in general with Matt Dixon of POLITICO. Ana Ceballos of the News Service of Florida was on hand to focus in on education and how schools are handling reopening during the pandemic.
