PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Last week, as President Joe Biden toured the ruins of Fort Myers and surroundings following the destruction brought by Hurricane Ian.

Election year politics seemed to fade even for a short time, as Florida lawmakers were grappling with how to infuse emergency money into repair and recovery.

Congressman Carlos Gimenez is one of those lawmakers.

He represents parts of west Miami-Dade and the Florida Keys, which have been declared a federal disaster zone because of damage caused by the storm.

Gimenez joined This Week in South Florida hosts Glenna Milberg and Michael Putney to discuss, and their conversation can be seen at the top of this page.
