Winner and loser of the week in Fla politics
Winner of the week
John Thrasher. Tallahassee's ultimate insider looks like a lock to become the next president of his beloved alma mater, Florida State University. And he doesn't even have to compete for the job.
Loser of the week
Charles Van Zant. The Republican state representative from Keystone Heights gave a speech that went viral last week in which he warned that the folks implementing Florida's "Common Core" educational standards are aiming to "attract every one of your children to become as homosexual as they possibly can." A product of Florida schools, Van Zant now looks like a poster child for the need to improve the state's educational standards.
