Election 2012

The road to the White House runs through Florida this year, from its decisive role in the GOP primary, to its hosting of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, to the general election fight along the deeply-purple I-4 Corridor.

Florida Senator Bill Nelson will be fighting for his political life as Republicans promise to unseat him. And politicians all over Florida are running for re-election in districts reshaped by redistricting.

Online and on the air, WUSF Public Media will get behind the headlines and tell you what’s really happening, and why it matters to you. From in-depth coverage of where candidates stand on the issues, to fact-checks of what they and the Super PACS supporting them say, WUSF is the source you can depend on to make informed decisions during Election 2012.
