After a 12-year-run in the state legislature, former Republican State Senator Jeff Brandes, has launched the Florida Policy Project. The St. Petersburg native joined WMNF public affairs program “The Skinny” to discuss his new, “non-profit and non-partisan research institute,” plus dive into the issues of recreational weed, home insurance, housing, criminal justice reform and even the Republican presidential primary. “I think DeSantis would make a better president,” he said.
