WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:

Last night on the Evening News we heard from Michael van Hoek, a Democrat who has announced his candidacy to run for Congress in Florida’s Ninth District next year against GOP incumbent Gus Bilirakis.

Tonight, we hear from another Democrat who has entered the race. He’s Bill Mitchell, a Tampa attorney and Vietnam veteran who considered running last year, but stepped aside after Phyllis Busansky got in the race.

WMNF’s Mitch Perry spoke to Mitchell today, and began by asking about his thoughts about the Iraq war.
