For those keeping score at home...



U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez's chief of staff is leaving for the private sector, and the senator has promoted his Florida field director to replace him.

John Little, Martinez's chief since his election in 2004, is joining The Petrizzo Group, a D.C. lobbying firm, as a policy consultant on federal issues affecting Florida.

His replacement is Deputy Chief of Staff Tom Weinberg, who also served as state director in the Orlando office. Weinberg worked for Martinez, a Republican, when he was mayor of Orange County. The new state director is Kevin Doyle of Jacksonville.
