In the latest video from the “Florida Newsmaker” series, Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant sits down with Ron Sachs for her first television interview. 
With two recent polls (Quinnipiac and PPP) showing Governor Rick Scott trailing such potential candidates as former Governor Charlie Crist and former Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink and only slightly ahead of declared candidate Nan Rich, Tant says she’s expecting a solid victory in 2014: “Rick Scott is vulnerable, he is beatable and we intend to beat him.”
