Winner and Loser of the week in Florida politics
Winner of the week
John Legg. On Monday Rep. John Legg's Senate campaign got an endorsement from incoming Speaker Will Weatherford. On Tuesday, incumbent Sen. Jim Norman dropped his re-election bid. Need more evidence that Legg is the GOP's favored candidate? Five top Republican senators endorsed him last week: Don Gaetz, Andy Gardiner, Jack Latvala, Joe Negron and John Thrasher.
Loser of the week
Jim Greer. Sleazy allegations about Charlie Crist's sex life, accusations of witness tampering. Now two lawyers for former Florida GOP chairman Greer want off the money laundering case, which is shaping up to be an even uglier affair than anticipated.
