There are new unofficial results in Florida's Democratic gubernatorial primary. The race, which pitted former Attorney General Janet Reno against Tampa lawyer Bill McBride, has been prolonged for a week due to procedural and technical problems. After a recount in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, we are now closer to knowing who will face Republican Gov. Jeb Bush in November. McBride appears to have won by about 4,800 votes. Joni James, a political reporter for The Miami Herald, joins Neal Conan to discuss the current vote tallies.
