Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics



bondi1.jpgWinner of the week: Pam Bondi. Florida's new attorney general is on a roll: success so far in the state's lawsuit to overturn the health care reform law, pushing for tougher laws to crack downs on pill mills and going after a bank accused of defrauding Florida's pension fund.

Loser of the week: Mitt Romney. Jeb Bush lands on the cover of the latest National Review magazine, mitt.jpgfeaturing a glowing article about his education reform efforts and practically fantasizing about another President Bush. It's a reminder that the 2012 GOP presidential field lacks a conservative giant. Is it so far-fetched to see Jeb jump in late if no clear favorite emerges over the next year?
