Politinerds: The Joe Scarborough Interview


We had another special guest this week on Politinerds, Morning Joe host, and former Florida Congressman Joe Scarborough. During the roughly 50 minutes of his time that Joe was generous enough to spend with his, we talk about his time growing up in New York State and Florida, the influence that his parents, and especially his father, had on him growing up, running for Congress in a race where national Republicans told him he couldn’t win in a race against a long-time Democratic incumbent in a seat Republicans had not won in roughly 100 years, his time in Congress as part of the Class of 1994, and, of course, a bit about the cable news world.

The show is embedded below, and you can find links to all past episodes at the show archive.
