Former Florida Reps Aim to Unlock Gridlock

Two former members of Florida's U-S House delegation, from opposite sides of the aisle, are holding meetings across the state starting next month.

The subject of these meetings is about how to fix the dysfunction on Capitol Hill.

Former Tampa Bay area Representative David Jolly, a Republican, has teamed up with his counterpart, Treasure Coast Democrat Patrick Murphy, also a former Representative.

The two men went head-to-head in debates when both were running for the U.S. Senate in 2016.

They are getting back together for a statewide road show to talk about bipartisanship and breaking gridlock.

The two contend that the nation is more divided than ever, but division doesn't have to be the shape of the future.

Jolly and Murphy say they'll "pull back the curtain" and explain why Congress is dysfunctional, and offer solutions. 

They've scheduled four events at Florida universities... saying they want to reach millenials with their message, that both parties can work together. 

The first of those events is September 12 at the University of South Florida in Tampa. 

The other three events are planned for October.

They'll be held at Florida International University on October 4, Miami on October 18, and in Gainesville on October 25.

Jolly and Murphy say the town halls will be free and open to the public.
