A Closer Look at the Local Primaries

It's lost in all the hoopla surrounding the presidential campaign and the upcoming Republican National Convention. But there's another election coming up - the primaries. And outside money is flooding in like never before.

WUSF's Carson Cooper chats with Peter Schorsch, who edits SaintPetersBlog, Tampa Tribune political writer William March, and veteran journalist Wayne Garcia, with the USF School of Journalism. They talk about the race for state House between Jeff Brandes and Jim Frishe in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties; the Rachel Burgin versus Tom Lee race in eastern Hillsborough; the race for Pinellas Sheriff between former Sheriff Everett Rice and interim Sheriff Bob Gualtieri; and Ronda Storms vs Rob Turner for Hillsborough Property Appraiser.
