Days before state regulators approved the deal this brand new company, Heritage Insurance, gave $110,000 to Gov. Scott’s re-election campaign. Democrats and Republicans are both complaining about it. Gov. Scott denies he did anything wrong and refuses to return the money.

Joining DeFede in the discussion are Carlos Lacasa, Chairman of Citizen’s Governing Board; State Rep. Jose Felix Diaz and Marc Caputo from The Miami Herald.
