Trade and agricultural products, water quality and concealed weapon permits are just some of the issues in the race to be Florida’s next Agriculture Commissioner.

The three Democratic candidates competing for their party’s nomination to be the Commissioner of Agriculture are Ft. Lauderdale lobbyist Nikki Fried, South Florida Audubon Society President Roy David Walker of Broward County and Homestead Mayor Jeff Porter.

This conversation was produced by WLRN Public Media and Florida Public Radio.
