While speaking to reporters in Tampa yesterday, the GOP gubernatorial candidate reportedly said he plans to reveal in a few weeks his master plan to fix Florida's many traffic problems, and specifically referred to Orlando's congestion as a "disaster."
According to WDBO, DeSantis was noticeably scant on details, but did say that traffic is, you know, bad. "It is very important. You look at the Tampa Bay area where I grew up. You know it’s gotten more congested over the years. Orlando is a disaster for traffic, Miami’s like a parking lot," said the former congressman.
Since the private-public I-4 Ultimate Improvement Project won't be finished until at least 2021, and is currently eight months behind schedule and $100 million over budget, we can only wonder what kind of magic DeSantis is referring to here.
If he's not going to say the words "corporate-backed free public mass transit," then try again.
