State Rep. Nicholas Duran discusses gaming compact on TWISF

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – The gambling compact sailed through the Florida legislature in record time, three days.

It was pushed across the finish line by Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Republican leadership.

Democrats, meanwhile, tried to slow things down and offered several amendments, but without success.

One of the designated point men for House Democrats was Rep. Nicholas Duran of Miami.

He joined This Week in South Florida hosts Michael Putney and Glenna Milberg, and their conversation can be seen at the top of this page.
