Winner and loser of the week



Williamsetal Winner(s) 

of the week: Larry Williams, Deveron Gibbons, Scott Wagman, Jamie Bennett. The more people see and hear of St. Pete mayoral candidates Bill Foster and Kathleen Ford, the more we hear disgust with the choices. The also-rans in the primary look better with every passing day.


Loser of the week: Charlie Crist. So much for Gov.

Crist’s easy waltz into the U.S. Senate. Polls show Marco Rubio is closing the gap, even Cristfrown former conservative fans like the Cato Institute are turning on Crist eand now come revelations about how little actual governing time Crist schedules. Helping fuel the rap that Crist consistently puts his own self-interest above all else, the governor is dispatching his chief of staff to help stem Rubio’s momentum at a time when he could use all the horsepower available actually governing Florida .
