Caitie Switalski of WLRN in Florida joins River to River host Ben Kieffer for a conversation on Wayne Messam, Mayor of Miramar, Florida. Switalski explains the reaction, or lack thereof, from the Messam campaign on his third quarter fundraising numbers. It was reported by the New York Times and Los Angeles Times that Messam only raised $5 during this quarter of fundraising. Messam is also calling this election cycle "the election of the Mayor," Switalski said.
