NBC's Chuck Todd shoots 'Meet The Press Daily' in Tampa

He's a former Floridian

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) - Tuesday afternoon, Florida politics hit the national spotlight with a crew from NBC News on the beach at Rocky Point in Tampa.

"Meet the Press Daily" set up shop at Whiskey Joe's to cover a range of topics with host Chuck Todd.

Some of those issues include immigration, the environment and gun control.

Chuck Todd says many are watching how candidates do in the mid-term election to gauge how things will go two years from now.    

“The governor's race in particular, you've got somebody who's emblematic of the Trump era on the right in Ron Desantis. And somebody who's emblematic of this new progressive era on the left in Andrew Gillum. So in that sense, I think that race is a preview of 2020,” said Todd.

A large crowd turned up to watch the show as it went out on MSNBC.

Chuck Todd posed for pictures with some fans.
