Intersection: Rick Scott’s Senate Campaign; Rodeo At School; Youth Homelessness

At his Senate campaign launch in Orlando, Gov. Rick Scott highlighted his record on job creation and vowed to change a ‘horribly dysfunctional’ Washington.

Joining Intersection to preview Scott’s challenge to Sen. Bill Nelson are Politico Florida senior editor Sergio Bustos, Adam Goodman, national GOP strategist and president of The Victory Group in Tampa- St. Petersburg, and Steve Schale, Democratic political strategist and president of Schale Strategies in Tallahassee.

Then- how does rodeo fit into the school curriculum?  Intersection visits the Osceola County Heritage Park to speak with Osceola Schools Superintendent Dr. Debra Pace, South Eastern Circuit champion bull rider Michael Riggs, cattle rancher and school board member Ricky Booth, and middle school literacy resource teacher Janine Bracco.

And non-profits fighting homelessness in Central Florida now have a better idea of the number of youth living on the streets thanks to a tri-county survey.

The census conducted last October is the first ever regional study of homeless youth in Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties.
