For fans of politics, there’s a pinch of CNN. For foodies, there’s a dash of Cooking Channel. For devotees of both, there’s a Florida-grown blend that outfits some of the state’s most prominent politicians in aprons and arms them with knives or whisks.
“Live with Lori: Political Food for Thought,” has featured the president of the Florida Senate, the speaker of the Florida House, two likely candidates for governor in 2018, and U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, one of the state’s most conservative Republicans.
On Wednesday morning, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, gets her turn at cooking and conversation.
Wasserman Schultz and host Lori Halbert make mustard sauce for Florida stone crabs and key lime pie, while they talk about immigration reform and funding cancer research, plus the congresswoman’s family and how women in politics juggle their responsibilities.
