Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics
Winner of the week
Donald Trump. His Florida co-chairman, state GOP vice chairman Joe Gruters of Sarasota, will be a delegate to the national convention, helping ensure that no funny business happens to 99 Florida delegates committed to Trump for three ballots. Some Republicans see the possibility of a last-minute rule change that could loosen their commitment to Trump
Loser of the week:
Rep. Rich Workman and Sen. Tom Lee. The divorce and alimony reform bill they championed died under Rick Scott's veto pen thanks to bad strategy by some legislators who added what proved to be a poison pill requirement for equal custody.
