Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics



Winner of the week

Miami-Dade County. Both likely nominees for governor now have running mates from the state's most populous county, enhancing its role in the race. Democrat Charlie Crist chose Annette Taddeo-Goldstein, who, like Gov. Rick Scott's No. 2, Carlos Lopez-Cantera, is Hispanic. Muy bien for Miami.

Loser of the week

Pam Bondi. The attorney general, who immediately appealed a South Florida court ruling overturning Florida's same-sex marriage ban, is becoming the face of opposition to marriage equality. All signs point to the tide of history rolling over Bondi, who is up for re-election in November.
