Today, Nicole Sandler invites her listeners down to the swampy southland known as Florida (FloriDUH to most of us). Deborah Newell joins in for our weekly segment poking fun at FloriDUH, Sanders delegate to the DNC from Palm Beach County, Hillary Keyes, will fill us in on the process and what happens next. And Nicole pulls out a blast from the past - a 2007 interview with Debbie Wasserman Schultz to show how long she's been at odds with the (soon to be former?) DNC Chair.

In the first hour, Nicole welcomes Tim Canova, the law professor and political activist challenging Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the primary. And Deborah Newell joins in for our Wednesday morning dip into the Oy FloriDUH files too.
It's a busy Thursday on the show, as the race tightens. Nicole welcomes Howie Klein back to the show to talk about all of it! MoveOn's Ben Wikler tells us about their record-breaking endorsement of Bernie Sanders. And it's Driftglass Thursday too!
