Winner and losers of the week in Florida politics
Winner of the week
Marco Rubio. In another strong debate, Marco Rubio finally stopped playing Mr. Nice Guy with Donald Trump. Three questions now: What took so long? Is it too late? What's with suggesting Friday that Trump peed in his pants?
Losers of the week
Ron DeSantis, David Jolly, Carlos Lopez-Cantera and Todd Wilcox. As if the four, little-known Republican candidates for U.S. Senate did not already have a hard enough time getting noticed. Now, they have to deal with a rich outsider, Manatee County developer Carlos Beruff, ready and able to spend millions of his own dollars to win the nomination.
