Winner of the week.

Andrew Gillum. The Tallahassee mayor and candidate for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination received a big assist from billionaire Tom Steyer and his political committee NextGen America, who announced a $1 million "initial investment" in Gillum's underdog campaign.

Loser of the week

Pam Bondi protesters. Political passion is a good thing. Shouting and heckling someone as she goes to see the Mr. Rogers documentary at the Tampa Theatre — as a group of people did to the attorney general last weekend —  is obnoxious, menacing, jerky and a great way to push people away from your cause.
