Debbie Dooley on criticism of Floridians for solar choice; Starbucks tries to engage discussion on race with baristas


Debbie Dooley is a co-founder of the national Tea Party, and a leading supporter of the movement to get a constitutional amendment on the ballot next year in Florida that would allow citizens the opportunity to purchase solar power from third-party companies, not public utilities. But as they race to get the necessary signatures on the ballot, there has been a tremendous surge against that by other conservatives. Dooley talks about the criticism, which she says is unfounded.

talking race at Starbucks? That’s what Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has proposed, but there has also been strong opposition to that attempt.
