THE ROTUNDA -- This episode features University of Florida political science professor Michael McDonald, as he explains why Florida’s redistricting problems will not be over anytime soon.


This week, several lawmakers turned the spotlight on their alma matter, Florida A&M University, the state’s only public historically black university, with a plea for the schools board of trustees Chairman, Rufus Montgomery, to resign and end his “personal feud” with the university’s president, Elmira Mangum. Florida Times Union Bureau Chief Tia Mitchell has been covering the ongoing issues at FAMU and tells Gomes what’s lead to the latest public conflict at the institution that may result in Gov. Rick Scott getting involved.
