Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics



Winner of the week - Jeb Bush.

He had his best debate performance yet last week. That's not saying much, but he seems to be enjoying his new role: the only major candidate blasting Donald Trump at every opportunity.

Loser of the week - Marco Rubio.

It took five debates, but Florida's leading presidential candidate finally faced tough questions about his involvement in the "Gang of Eight" immigration reform efforts. He is in a dicey game of attack and counterattack with Ted Cruz, and earning negative publicity questioning his commitment to key early states.
