Good Thursday morning.
Even though it has been an incredibly busy, historic news cycle, we begin by wishing House Speaker Chris Sprowls a happy birthday. And to do that, we asked two people in The Process close to Chris to do that.
Rep. Chris Latvala writes: “Happy Birthday to an amazing father, husband, friend, and Speaker. Chris Sprowls is the right leader at the right moment. Enjoy your day, my friend, and have a happy birthday.”
Senate President Wilton Simpson adds: “Wishing the happiest of birthdays to my good friend and partner in the process, Speaker Sprowls. During these unprecedented times in our state and nation, I’m honored to serve alongside a person of great faith, steadfast conviction, tremendous intelligence, and unquestionable integrity. Happy Birthday Mr. Speaker!”
On behalf of everyone here at Florida Politics, as well as Michelle and Ella Joyce, happy birthday Mr. Speaker.
