Florida This Week; Perspectives on latest Democratic debate


By Rob Lorei

Today on radioactivity we listen to the latest  Florida this week, a news and public affairs show moderated by Rob Lorei that airs every Friday night at 8:30 on local PBS station WEDU. This week’s panel offers political insights on the biggest political issues in Florida: Gov. Rick Scott call for a billion dollar tax break for businesses, the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling against Florida’s death penalty, St.Pete finally allows the Tampa Bay Rays to look for a new stadium site, and a former Republican leader calls out Donald Trump on his morality.

Then we look at some key moments from Sunday’s Democratic debate in Charleston, South Carolina. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley tackled the issues of healthcare reform, campaign financing, and gun control.
