By Elaine Chen
On the week's The Florida Roundup:
- Pope Francis may not be from the United States, but for many in South Florida, the fact that he's from Argentina is even better. Others question whether he did enough to oppose the massive killings in that country by the right-wing military in the 1970s. We have local reaction to the first Latin American Pope.

Allied Veterans was one of the biggest campaign contributors to state lawmakers. Will this be a political opportunity for Governor Rick Scott? A political liability for the gambling industry?
- Although a state Senate committee joined the House in rejecting Medicaid expansion, we’ll hear why that doesn’t mean that Florida is necessarily saying no.
Host Phil Latzman speaks with panelists Manny Garcia of El Nuevo Herald, Kathleen Haughney of the Sun Sentinel and Janie Campbell of the Huffington Post.
