This rider would specifically exempt candidates for President and Vice-President from the provisions of Section 99.012.

Today the Florida Senate passed SB 7050 and sent it to the House. They in turn have added it to the Special Order Calendar and will take it up this Friday (April 28).

Laura Loomer shared this early this morning as the Senate took up SB 7050:
