Winner and loser of the week in Florida politics



Winner of the week

Rick Scott. The governor has a lot of people eager to suck up to him these days, hoping to become his pick to be Florida's next attorney general, with Pam Bondi expected to join Donald Trump's administration. Scott rushed to scene of another shooting rampage in Florida this weekend and succeeded infuriated some Democrats yet again. While helping shaken travellers find lost luggage in Fort Lauderdale, he kept the president-elect apprised of the situation rather than the president.

Loser of the week

Rick Scott. As with any high-profile appointment, Scott's pick is likely to anger and disappoint more people than it pleases.
