Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics



Winner of the week

Blaise Ingoglia. The Florida GOP Chairman managed to give the state's delegates to the national convention a top-notch week in Cleveland, with A-list breakfast speakers, good parties and prime seat. He is the first Republican Chairman to pull that off with no help from the governor, since Rick Scott has essentially abandoned the Florida GOP to concentrate on his own political committee.

Loser of the week

Florida Democratic party. While elected Sunshine State Republicans were front and center in Cleveland, Hillary Clinton's convention announced only one Florida speaker on the schedule: Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum.
