FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Palm Beach County has defied Florida's governor and refused to lower its flags for a day in honor of the late conservative broadcaster Rush Limbaugh. Flags at the county courthouse remained at full-staff on Wednesday even though Gov. Ron DeSantis had order flags lowered there, at the state Capitol and at the Town of Palm Beach. Palm Beach County said it was following its normal flag protocols. One county commissioner said the flags should stay at full-staff, calling Limbaugh “incredibly divisive." Flags at the Capitol and in the Town of Palm Beach were lowered. The governor's office called the county's move “petty.”
