The Politically Incorrect Podcast features plenty of local and national isses
WASHINGTON – On our latest edition of The Politically Incorrect Podcast, News Talk Florida’s columnists Joe Henderson, Tom Jackson and me cover many topics of the day including the 2016 Presidential race, the key primary races in Florida as well as why it looks like St. Petersburg looks like they will be the home of the new Cuban Consulate.
Here is an overview of the topics we discuss –
What a week for 2016 Presidential race as Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton gets a good bounce in the polls post the Democratic Convention but still is on the offensive visiting Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan to shore up support. Key battle ground states can’t be overlooked in the race for the White House.
Meanwhile, Republican nominee Donald Trump is fighting with military vets, the GOP establishment and anyone else who seems to want to tell him what to do. He told the newspaper he had banned from his campaign, The Washington Post his at the moment is withholding his support for two of the party’s biggest names. Trump said he is “not quite there yet” on backing House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and sharply criticized Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
“I like Paul, but these are horrible times for our country,” he told The Washington Post. “We need very strong leadership. We need very, very strong leadership. And I’m just not quite there yet. I’m not quite there yet.”
Trump seemed to be alluding to a May interview with CNN where Ryan similarly said he was not “ready” to back Trump for president, after the businessman became the GOP’s presumptive nominee.
Sen. Marco Rubio looks like he will come out of the up-coming GOP primary as the victor. His most likely opponent will be Democratic Congressman Patrick Murphy, who is expected to defeat Rep. Alan Grayson in a wild race.
Lastly we touch on the strong possibility that the Cuban Consulate will be coming to St. Petersburg instead of the most natural location in Ybor City. We will tell you why so check out the podcast.
