There are probably a decent number of lefties out there who are happy that a Republican Congressman tested positive for coronavirus, whether they’ll publicly admit it or not. That’s just the type of people they’ve become in the Trump era.

On Wednesday, Florida’s Mario Diaz-Balart (R) made a major announcement.

From Fox News:

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., on Wednesday became the first member of Congress to announce that he has tested positive for coronavirus, saying he had been stricken with a fever and headache this weekend.

The virus has already affected others on Capitol Hill, which remains closed to visitors. Two congressional staffers have been infected by the virus, and some prominent politicians have self-quarantined at both the state and federal levels.
