Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics

25

October

Winner of the week - Eric Lynn.

The Pinellas County Democratic congressional candidate may be about to get bulldozed by Charlie Crist, but the first week of Crist's candidacy drew a promise from the White House that Obama would stay neutral and a surprising Lynn endorsement from St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman.

Loser of the week - Jeb Bush.

Hurting in the polls and in fundraising, Bush's campaign announced salary, travel and other cuts on Friday. A memo heralded "extensive field operations in all four early primary states" and he does have time to recover. But it marked the lowest point so far for a candidate who began at the top. Surely it can't all be blamed on Donald Trump.
