WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:


Last night in downtown Tampa about 50 Venezuelan ex-pats banged pots and pans and waved Venezuelan flags at motorists passing by Curtis Hixon Park.

They boisterously supported the loser of the recent presidential election, Henrique Capriles.

They're asking for a full recount of the election narrowly won by Nicolas Maduro.

Yesterday officials said they would do an audit of the results.

WMNF interviewed Karina Celis, a sociologist from Caracas who lives in Tampa.
