Regardless of which poll you look at this morning, Mitt Romney is up big in Florida, and he’s leading in nearly every demographic. Given his margin, it’s improbable Newt Gingrich can pull off an upset. But most political analysts agree that the GOP contest doesn’t end in Florida, and will continue through at least Super Tuesday. Meanwhile, the Obama 2012 campaign awaits it’s opponents. Will the long haul primary seal the President’s re-election? We’ll pose those questions and more to the panel.
Plus, two great guests: Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who knows the Florida electorate pretty well since first being elected to Congress in 1989. And Lucas Baiano, a young and prolific political filmmaker who will shed light on the incredibly influential art of the campaign ad.
