Winner: Jared Moskowitz. Moskowitz courted strong support upon entering the race to replace Rep. Ted Deutch. Now, the field is beginning to clear for Moskowitz. This past week, Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis and former Broward Supervisor of Elections candidate Chad Klitzman both bowed out as Moskowitz collected more endorsements.
Loser: Charles Burkett. The Surfside Mayor lost his bid for re-election after overseeing the town through last summer’s deadly condo collapse. Critics accused Burkett of hogging the spotlight following the tragedy and leading contentious Commission hearings. Burkett argued he needed to be Surfside’s face during the state and federal response.
