Winner and loser of the week in Fla politics



pr5.jpgWinner of the week: Presidency 5. A lot of pundits questioned the significance of the Florida GOP's Presidency 5 conference and mock primary election. But Herman Cain is now a leading presidential contender, and there's no question activist voting in P5's straw poll launched him.

Rick Scott made it clear last week he has little use for you. In the name of job creation, he wants Florida universities to focus much more on science, technology, engineering and math.
