Sean Hannity says it's official: He's moving to Florida, and he will have a ranch in Texas.
Hannity first threatened
to leave New York, the state where he was born and now resides, in January after Gov. Andrew Cuomo said conservatives have "no place" in his state. Since then, the Republican governors of both Texas and Florida have made pitches to Hannity to move to their states. Both have no state income tax.
Hannity listed his Long Island home for sale
in February for $3.6 million, Newsday reported at the time.

Hannity hosts a prime-time television show on Fox News Channel and a nationally syndicated radio show, both based in New York.
But at the close of an interview Wednesday with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Hannity said,
"You're soon going to be my senator."
"Is that final?" Rubio asked, sounding surprised.
"I'm going to Florida, and I'm going to get a little Texas ranch," Hannity said. "I've decided I'm leaving New York when my kid graduates high school."
"Well, that's a great choice, then," Rubio responded. "We're glad to have you in Florida."
Hannity said he has "a little place in Naples," but will probably be getting a bigger one at the urging of his wife.
