Florida Matters News Roundtable: The Latest In State Politics And Pulse Two Years Later

State politicians are jockeying for position before the August primaries. Pulse nightclub first responders are still struggling with PTSD more than two years after the mass shooting that killed 49 people. We take a deeper dive into these stories on this week’s Florida Matters monthly news roundtable.

We talk with Health News Florida reporter Abe Aboraya, who has been looking at PTSD in first responders as part of a special project for ProPublica.

We also get the latest on some state and local political races from William March, veteran reporter and longtime correspondent for the Tampa Bay Times.

You can hear William March provide more insight on Florida’s political scene our podcast Florida Matters More.
