One of the more heated races coming up during the August 30 primaries is for State Senate District 19. It's a majority-minority district, being vacated by Arthenia Joyner, the longtime Tampa politician and the Senate minority leader.

Reporter Steve Newborn looks into this race with WUSF's political analyst William March, who says it's pitting a lot of black politicians in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties against each other.
