Vice President Joe Biden is carrying the message of making college more affordable throughout Florida this week. Monday he stopped in Tallahassee at Florida State University to talk about the rising cost of tuition—an issue that’s been front and center in state politics recently. But Lynn Hatter reports when it comes to the issue of holding down costs in higher education—some say it shouldn’t come at the cost of financial aid to students who need it the most.

Santorum has branded himself as the  “Christian conservative” candidate over the course of his presidential bid, and during a prayer breakfast at Florida State University, he once again played up his conservative credentials, talking about the role of faith in government, education and politics.

“We will never have limited government, we will continue to be less free, unless we revitalize the institutions of faith and family in America. That’s the real message.”

Two of Tallahassee's higher education institutions have been ranked among the nation's most affordable schools. Lynn Hatter reports when it comes to paying for college, many of the best values can be found in Florida.

Florida State University and Florida A&M University have been ranked among some of the nation's most financial friendly colleges and universities. FSU's ranking comes from Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine, which placed it as the 18th most affordable college in the nation. Florida A & M's credits come from JET magazine.
