Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics



Winner of the week > Jeb Bush.

Congratulations, Ivy Leaguer. Bush this fall will teach at Harvard's Kennedy School, becoming a visiting fellow in the Program on Education Policy and Governance. Bush has an undergraduate degree from the University of Texas. Brother George graduated from Harvard Business School in 1975.

Loser of the week > Aedes aegypti mosquitoes.

The Zika virus-carrying pests will soon face an onslaught after Congress approved a budget deal that includes $1.1 billion in funding to fight Zika. Florida lawmakers struggled for months to get the money, which became tangled in partisan politics.
