Winner and loser of the week in Fla politics



ramos.jpgjamescarter.jpgWinners of the week: Jorge Ramos. The Univision personality showed his chops with aggressive questioning last week of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney in Miami. Winner of the week 2: James Carter. Jimmy Carter's Democratic activist grandson managed to knock Romney's campaign off stride by digging up and leaking a secret recording of Romney suggesting to Boca Raton donors in May that Obama supporters and nearly half of Americans are moochers feeding off government help.

Loser of the week: Marc Leder: The private equity executive wound up with loads of unwanted publicity - including a resurrected New York Post story about his Hamptons leder.jpgparties featuring nudity and sex acts - after the 47 percent videotape surfaced from the $50,000-a-head Romney fundraiser Leder hosted at his Boca Raton mansion in May.
