Going Green

Primary Results

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton scored huge victories Tuesday in five more states, bringing them closer to a monumental duel for the White House later this year.

Trump had a clean sweep of races in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Clinton delivered big wins in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Connecticut.

Bernie Sanders picked up his sole victory of the night in Rhode Island.

  Primary Elections

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump easily won Florida last night in the state’s key primary election.

Tuesday’s contests, with more than 14 million votes cast in five states, marked a turning point in both parties’ presidential primary campaigns.

Democrats and Republicans can now confidently predict which candidates will likely have the most delegates at their conventions in July: Trump and Clinton, both hold commanding leads.

But challengers John Kasich, Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz are not giving up the fight.

We discuss the results of Tuesday's primary elections with Dr. Michael McDonald, professor of political science at the University of Florida.


Saying “retreat is better than defeat,” the most prominent supporter of expanding equal protections to this city’s LGBT community withdrew his bill on the topic last week.

Jacksonville City Councilman Tommy Hazouri says he wants a chance to work further with city attorneys to clarify exemptions, focus on the business side of the bill and continue to educate the public about the matter.

Hazouri joins us to discuss this.


As the Jacksonville City Council looks at two proposed bills that would amend the city’s human rights ordinance to include protections for the LGBT community, the JAX Chamber has announced it supports amending the HRO to be all-inclusive.

The Chamber gave Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry its endorsement over former Mayor Alvin Brown during last year’s mayoral race. However, Curry has now come out against updating the human rights ordinance, differing from the Chamber on this issue its members say is important for business expansion here on the First Coast.

JAX Chamber chair Audrey Moran joins us to discuss why the issue.


The Jacksonville City Council heard three hours of public comment Tuesday night on whether to update the city's human rights ordinance to cover LGBT citizens from discrimination.

City Councilmen Bill Gulliford and Tommy Hazouri are both sponsoring bills that could expand the city’s human rights ordinance to protect people in the areas of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression. The Council is expected to start deliberation on the bills soon.

We discuss the latest on Jacksonville's HRO with WJCT reporter Lindsey Kilbride.
