Dave Barry explains what it's like to be relevant during an election year

Bill Radke speaks with writer and humorist Dave Barry about what it's like to live in a state that's relevant during presidential elections. While Hillary Clinton will almost certainly get Washington's electoral votes, Florida, per usual, is up for grabs.

Barry, whose new book is "Best. State. Ever.: A Florida Man Defends His Homeland," tells Radke about the origins of Florida's wacky reputation (the 2000 election), what he thinks of Seattle and what we can all learn this election season from Florida's legendary electoral foibles.
