Larcenia Bullard, Dave Bitner in thoughts of Florida Senate

Sen. Stephen Wise, a Jacksonville Republican, led his colleagues on the floor of the Florida Senate in prayer Monday morning. He asked God to help Sen. Larcenia Bullard, the South Miami-Dade Democrat who has been out ill almost all of the legislative session, and Republican Party of Florida President Dave Bitner, a former lawmaker who announced last week that he has been diagnosed with ALS, known as Lou Gehrig's disease. "With Your healing power, we ask that their bodies be healed," Wise said.
