On the first half of today’s show we listen back to the latest Florida This Week, a political talk show on local PBS station WEDU that is moderated by Rob Lorei. This episode’s panel of political experts tackle the week’s biggest stories in Florida Politics: Jeb Bush’s drop-out and Marco Rubio’s push forward in the Republican Presidential Race,  the defeated fracking bill in Tallahassee, Critics of Enterprise Florida call in public welfare, and the bipartisan push to expand the Florida cabinet.

Then we look at the latest controversy involving Donald Trump. This time it surrounds his refusal to disavow David Duke, former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, who is endorsing Trump’s presidential bid, along with other white supremacist groups.
