Posted at 9:05 PM, Mar 30, 2023

Hours after a grand jury voted to indict former President Donald Trump, Florida's representatives have been pouring out responses along with the nation, including those representing Southwest Florida.

Governor Ron DeSantis tweeted Thursday night.

Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Lee County Kari Lerner gave the following statement:

 "No one is above the law. The Grand Jury found evidence to indict, it does not and SHOULD not matter that the defendant is or was the President. It is reassuring to see our institutions hold, to see accountability & consequences for illegal acts."

Local leaders like Congressman Greg Steube and Congressman Byron Donalds also took to Twitter Thursday night, along with several others.
