Florida Governor's Race 2014


The ​second debate of Florida's ​2014 gubernatorial ​election ​started with a strange standoff, and brought out more of the candidates' jabs.​ Governor Rick Scott and former Governor Charlie Crist went at each other with full force.​

​On Wednesday, Oct. 15, public radio stations across the state brought you three hours of debate coverage, including a debrief with moderator Eliott Rodriguez of CBS Miami, who spoke about what a disagreement over ventilation for Charlie Crist meant for the issues.

​Hear the full debate, including its clumsy opening, here:
