Local, National Candidates Campaign in Fla.; Sustainable Gardening

Oct 15, 2020


Wednesday night, First Coast voters heard from four congressional candidates at two events.


Meanwhile, President Donald Trump and Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden are courting Florida voters with a virtual Town Hall and campaign stop in Miami, respectively.



The virtual presidential debate initially scheduled for Thursday night was canceled upon Trump’s refusal to participate.

Back on the First Coast, incumbent U.S. Rep. Al Lawson (D-FL5) and Republican challenger Gary Adler took part in a virtual forum while incumbent U.S. Rep. John Rutherford (R-FL4) debated Democratic challenger Donna Deegan.


AG Gancarski of Florida Politics joined us to discuss the national and local races, Gov. Ron DeSantis’ decision to not wear a mask at Monday’s Sanford Trump rally, and what voters are missing out on by not having a presidential debate Thursday night.


Deegan also called into the show to discuss her debate last night with Rutherford.
