Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics



Winner ?of the week

Charlie Crist. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration last week said the La Niña climate condition means the likelihood of more hurricanes this year. Bad news for Florida, but a great opportunity for the governor and Senate candidate to keep himself on TV constantly as Election Day approaches. Could be the best thing to happen to his Senate bid since the BP oil catastrophe.

Loser ?of the week

Gainesville. Thanks to one extremist minister, the city is cast internationally as a backwoods mecca for loons. (rest of the print Buzz is here)
