Florida Voters Hoping For Solutions from Republicans!

Wall Street Journals’s Arian Campo-Flores reports on housing crisis and how it has hit Florida especially hard. He reports Florida’s residents are looking to presidential candidates for specific remedies. Florida, California, and Nevada (=Las Vegas) have been the worst impacted housing markets in the USA.

In my view, Florida’s voters should not expect any of the Republican candidates to solve their problems housing and employment problems.
