Wednesday Florida Political Headlines: Walker Wins, Jacobs/Dyer Citrus Bowl Showdown

Last night was something. I mean the way the Boston Celtics came back against Lebron and the Miami Heat was epic. There was also that recall thing in Wisconsin. Yes, that’s right. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker survived a recall against legions of Unions that were able to get 1 million petition signatures. The momentum instantly swings towards Mitt Romney moving into the summer and all of the sudden, a state that hasn’t turned red in 30 years is in play.

This and a showdown between Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs over Citrus Bowl upgrades lead off your Wednesday morning political headlines.
