Florida and the Politics of an Important Swing State

Hosted by

Florida's political history has had its share of political action, not just in the 2000 election. In 1972, both parties held their conventions in Miami Beach. Now it's one of the most important swing states, with seniors, Hispanics and evangelicals living side by side. To the Point's Avishay Artsy went out to Plant City, a town 30 miles east of Tampa on the I-4 corridor. Home to half of the state's Republican voters, it's a barometer for the political direction of this swing state.
