WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
Itâ€™s not the race for governor or US Senate, but the contest for state Chief Financial Officer has captured a few headlines in the final weeks leading up to the November 2nd elections.
In that race, Tallahassee lawyer and former Democratic state legislator Loranne Ausley is running against Senate President Jeff Atwater, a North Palm Beach Republican. The two have exchanged barbs over teacher merit pay and the state budget. WMNF caught up with Ausley at a recent Democrat rally, and asked her why she hopes to succeed Alex Sink, a Democrat running for governor, as the stateâ€™s next CFO.
