is out and readily available for all Americans. But people in red states have been much more hesitant to get their shots than people in blue states. As a result, a variant of COVID-19 is now surging in many Republican areas.

The governor told host Jake Tapper, “I don’t know if I underestimated it, but, certainly, the resistance has hardened in certain elements, and is simply false information.”

Hutchinson continued, “It is myths. As I go into these town hall meetings, someone said: Don’t call it a vaccine. Call it a bioweapon. And they talk about mind control. Well, those are obviously erroneous. Other members of the community correct that.”
