Winner and loser of the week

18

October

Meekclinton Winner of the week: U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek. It didn’t get much notice, but two very significant names - Sens. Bill Nelson and Harry Reid - were listed as hosts a Washington fundraising reception for the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate. The clear message? The Democratic establishment is embracing Meek as their candidate.

 Loser of the week: Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp. The lieutenant governor raised just $180,000 for his attorney Kott general campaign - less than both Democrats raised during the same period. Very weak indeed for a sitting lieutenant governor, and a sign he might even be the underdog in the primary as fellow Republicans Holly Benson of Pensacola and Pam Bondi of Tampa eye the race.
