THE ROTUNDA - This episode features Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant staying on message for all candidates during the Democratic presidential debate. Plus, debate analysis from News Service of Florida Senior Reporter Dara Kam.


The Capital Press Corp veteran also reflects with Gomes about the number of sandwiches leftover during the Associated Press’ annual pre-legislative planning session. This is a big change from sessions past when reporters and editors from around the state packed the event and would often miss a meal if not among the first in line – a sign of the times. Is the early start of session to blame for lagging attendance or continued cutbacks in newsrooms around the state?
