Winner and loser of the week



DeborahCoxRoush Winner of the week: Deborah Cox-Roush. The Hillsborough Republican chairwoman’s new “issues and ideas” summer speakers series drew more than 300 people for Senate candidate Marco Rubio Friday night. Under her leadership the party also has started a “Republicans Care” encouraging activists to help non-profit community organizations. Looks like an invigorated GOP heart beat in this crucial county that swung dramatically to Barack Obama in 2008. .

Loser of the week: State Rep. Chris Dorworth. The 33-year-old Lake Mary Republican actively campaigning to be state House Speaker in 2014, doesn’t exactly inspire confidence . Dorwrth The Orlando Sentinel reports that Mr. Government Should Live Within its Means is facing foreclosure on his 8,000 square foot mansion and recently lost a $2.7-million court judgement that he appears unable to pay.
