PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar of Miami easily won re-election last month, beating Democrat Annette Taddeo.

She’s a former television news anchor and reporter who’s at home in front of a camera.

Last week Salazar sat down with This Week in South Florida host Michael Putney for a one-on-one interview. The full discussion can be seen at the top of this page.
