Winner and loser of the week in Fla politics



seminolehardrock.jpgWinner of the week: Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. A ton of political operatives and political reporters will descend on the state fairgrounds in Tampa on Monday for the CNN-Tea Party Express Republican presidential debate. And afterward?

Losers of the week: U.S. Reps. Corrine Brown, D-Jacksonville, and Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Miami. The two members of Congress are trying to kill the redistricting reform measures overwhelmingly passed by Floridians last year, but their legal challenge was dismissed by a federal judge last week
