Governor Debate: Fan Debacle, Then Issues

After the drama over the fan subsided, the candidates for Florida governor discussed several serious issues, including child deaths and the Department of Children and Families, the so-called “stand-your-ground” law and the Affordable Care Act. As the Tribune/Scripps Capital Bureau reports, the issue of Medicaid expansion was brought up in a question about the state budget. Former Gov. Charlie Crist and current Gov. Rick Scott will face each other in a third and final debate Oct. 21. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
