1970 Governor’s Race – Askew v Kirk

1970 was supposed to be a banner GOP year in Florida. But infighting turned Republican against Republican, and led to a banner Democratic year headlined by Reubin Askew’s rout of sitting Governor Claude Kirk. On this week’s Florida History Podcast, we discuss this historic election.
