Gov. Ron DeSantis To Suspend Palm Beach Elections Chief Susan Bucher
Susan Bucher, the long-time supervisor of elections in Palm Beach County, was facing suspension Friday by Gov. Ron DeSantis following a series of post-election controversies.
DeSantis called a press conference for 1 p.m. Friday at The Historical Museum of Palm Beach. The advisory did not list a topic. But DeSantis, according to two sources outside the administration, has decided to suspend Bucher and replace her with Wendy Link, a Palm Beach County real estate lawyer and a member of the state university system board of trustees.
Reached Friday morning, Bucher said she had no knowledge of a suspension.
