Gov. Picks New Secretary of State

A Tampa-area judge is being named Florida's new secretary of state.

Governor DeSantis is naming Judge Laurel M. Lee to the position that includes the Florida Division of Elections.

Lee has been a judge since 2013 and previously served as an assistant U.S. Attorney.

Lee is replacing Mike Ertel, who stepped down after photos surfaced showing him in "black face."
