  • Governor Rick Scott touts his record on Florida's improving economy with the release of his first campaign ad and continues pursuing middle-of-the-road voters by criticizing President Barack Obama for not spending enough money to help modernize the state's ports. Latest polls show former Governor Charlie Crist leading Scott in the race for governor.  

  • As we reach the halfway point in the legislative session, the biggest winner may be moderation.  We’ll take a look at the latest developments on Medicaid, ethics reform, and education.    
  • The Dolphins say they will pay! - well, at least more than they initially offered.  We hear whether the latest proposal from the team is likely to sway Miami-Dade County voters who will decide in May whether public money should help pay for renovating Sun Life stadium.
