Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics



Winner of the week

Marco Rubio. It's nice to be wanted. The high-profile re-election campaign recruitment effort can only increase his value in the private sector as he hunts for his next job. And if he does run again, it gives him cover for reversing course on his presidential campaign promise that he would not seek a second term.

Loser of the week

Pam Bondi. Going into a bunker and hiding amid legitimate questions about soliciting a $25,000 campaign donation from Donald Trump while your office considered fraud complaints over Trump University is no way to help yourself or your pal Trump.
