Earlier this month, Florida Gov. Rick Scott gave his State of the State address and in it discussed topics such as education, job creation, the housing market and entitlement programs. We spoke with University of South Florida professor and political analyst, Dr. Susan MacManus, about the current landscape of Florida politics ranging from legislation to the role of government, as well as some breaking news in Gainesville politics. Early Thursday morning the city of Gainesville’s current mayor and candidate in the upcoming runoff election, Craig Lowe, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. We aired an interview with his opponent, Ed Braddy, who has DUI charges on his own record and discussed the implications of such an incident with Dr. MacManus.
