Rep. Ander Crenshaw

U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw (R-Jacksonville) announced this week that he will not seek re-election in November.

We discuss the ramifications of this shakeup in Northeast Florida’s political power structure, including what's next for Crenshaw's seat in Congress and who could be stepping up to replace him, with Matt Corrigan, professor of political science at UNF, and A.G. Gancarski, writer for Florida Politics.

RAP Home Tour

Each spring residents of the Riverside Avondale Historic District in Jacksonville, open their homes to guests in an effort to raise money for the city’s premier grassroots historic preservation organization, Riverside Avondale Preservation.

This Saturday and Sunday, doors will open once again for a two-day, self-guided tour.

Carmen Godwin of Riverside Avondale Preservation joins us with a preview.
