Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics
Winner of the week
Allison Tant. Yes, the Florida Democratic chairwoman watched as her close pal Debbie Wasserman Schultz was jeered at a Florida delegation breakfast in Philadelphia last week. But Tant presided over a week where Florida Democrats saw a parade of A-list speakers court them. Day after day, she showed off her own fire and passion for fighting for America's more vulnerable citizens, including her disabled son.
Loser of the week
Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The writing was probably on the wall for the ousted Democratic National Committee chairwoman at least a couple years ago, given how many detractors in the U.S. House and the White House saw her looking after her own interests ahead of theirs. Her legacy and reputation would be in much better shape had she quit the DNC before she had no choice.
