Mechanical problems have forced Governor Ron DeSantis to divert to St. Petersburg for an emergency landing.

DeSantis’ spokesman Dave Vasquez says it will result in an approximate 90 minute delay in Governor DeSantis’ arrival to Broward County.

The plane was en route to Fort Lauderdale from Tallahassee and Vasquez couldn’t elaborate on what the exact issue was.

The Governor is accompanied by Attorney General Ashley Moody, his Chief of Staff Shane Strum and three members of his executive staff. There are no reported injuries.
