After being the "invisible" party in Tallahassee for several years, Florida Democrats shined in this week's elections. Senate Republicans no longer have a veto-proof "supermajority," and the Democrats picked up at least four seats in the House - including knocking off the incoming speaker. WUSF's Steve Newborn talks with Florida Democratic Chairman Rod Smith about whether the party can keep up the momentum.

Steve Newborn is a WUSF reporter and producer at WUSF covering environmental issues and politics in the Tampa Bay area.
