Super PAC's, Big Money and the Convention outside the Convention

Hosted by

We look at the schedule for today's opening session and hear about the "shadow convention," where money and influence are meeting in Tampa behind closed doors. Also, an update on Hurricane Isaac. On Reporter's Notebook, the diversity that makes Florida a swing state with seniors, Hispanics and evangelicals, and an election official who says Republicans are trying to suppress Florida’s black vote.
