Play Audio


Central Florida’s Puerto Rican population is growing. What does that mean at the ballot box here in Florida and how can they help their fellow Puerto Ricans back home, where the island is grappling with debt?

Meanwhile local elections in Orlando are just weeks away. What seemed like a low-key mayoral race is heating up, as one of Buddy Dyer’s opponents pours thousands into a door-to-door campaign. But will it count on election day though?

What about Congress? People say they’re fed up with gridlock presidential hopefuls and voters came together in New Hampshire this week to talk about how to get things moving in Washington. Former Republican Party of Florida Chair Al Cardenas says the culture needs to change in the nation’s capital and he wants more lawmakers to work across the aisles.

And a drunk driver who live streamed herself on Periscope got the attention of law enforcement and Florida Senator Bill Nelson. Should this social media platform be a tool for police to use?

These stories and more on the Friday news round table on Intersection.
