In life, the conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was a divisive figure, who proudly waved the flag of conservatism and wallowed in the controversies he helped ignite. In death, those controversies follow him as partisans in his home state of Florida debate over whether to lower the state flag in his honor.

Gov. Ron DeSantis called Limbaugh a “legend” and ordered flags to be flown at half-staff as a show of respect after the longtime broadcaster, 70, died Wednesday of cancer.

But Democrats,

HHS must investigate alleged Cuomo nursing home deaths cover-up, House Republican urges

EXCLUSIVE – Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., demanded that the Department of Health and Human Services investigate New York nursing home deaths, citing the state attorney general’s report that Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration may have undercounted nursing home coronavirus deaths by as much as 50%.

Lamborn sent a letter to HHS acting secretary Norris Cochran on Thursday asking for an investigation into nursing home deaths under Cuomo for “a full and public accounting of his administration’s actions.”

CUOMO ADMITTED HE WOULDN’T PUT HIS MOTHER IN NURSING HOME THE SAME MONTH HE ISSUED COVID ORDER

“Throughout the pandemic, long term care facilities were ravaged by the coronavirus pandemic,” Lamborn told Fox News. “This tragedy was created and supercharged by terrible policies, like those of Governor Cuomo and President Biden’s assistant secretary of health nominee Rachel Levine, to place COVID-19 positive individuals back into nursing homes and long-term care facilities.”

“As soon as I saw that giant shuttered window, there was no turning back,” says designer Kevin Isbell of the Spanish Revival home in the Fairfax neighborhood of Los Angeles that he and his partner, Gianantonio Corna, now call home. But this wasn’t just any switch of street addresses: With the move, Isbell officially relocated his New York design practice to the West Coast. So, that is to say, those shutters were good enough to inspire a cross-country move.

Isbell was immediately smitten with the architecture of the home (“it’s a style you just don’t get in New York,” he says) and set about creating a design scheme that honored those bones while reflecting his own style.

“A lot of these old bungalows are getting sold and knocked down to build behemoth houses,” says the designer. His process was the

WASHINGTON — In Florida’s shadow Republican primary for president, Gov. Ron DeSantis is starting to dominate his once-better-known home state colleagues, Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott.

DeSantis’s popularity among Republicans has been steadily rising in the state and nationwide amid his handling of Covid, and now a new survey from top GOP pollster Tony Fabrizio gives a clearer picture of just how much the Florida GOP likes what he’s doing.

In a hypothetical three-way primary for president, DeSantis gets 64 percent support compared to 12 percent for Rubio and 10 percent for Scott, according to Fabrizio’s survey, which was conducted last week for a private client and shared with POLITICO.

That 52-point lead over Rubio represents a massive increase since July — the last time Fabrizio polled a matchup between the three and found
