Politics On Your Side – May 12, 2019

Politics

This week on Tampa Bay’s weekly local political show, Politics On Your Side:

  • Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) – host Evan Donovan goes 1-on-1 with Scott about Hurricane Michael relief funding, the Mueller Report, prescription drug prices and more. Scott gets emotional when discussing the situation in Venezuela and how people, especially kids, are being treated.
  • President Donald Trump visits the Panhandle and promises relief funds, but News Channel 8’s Jeff Patterson shows why it might not be enough.
  • Florida teachers can now carry guns–but no school districts have yet agreed to do so. Gov. Ron DeSantis tells Politics On Your Side it’s not a repudiation of the legislature’s solution because no one is forcing them.
  • Florida leaders want the new U.S. Space Command based in the Sunshine State.

Watch Tampa Bay’s weekly local political show, Politics On Your Side with host Evan Donovan, every Sunday morning at 9:30 on WFLA News Channel 8, right before Meet the Press.
