South Florida’s Winner and Loser of the Week

by carlislewillard

Winner: Jason Pizzo. Pizzo has already locked up his re-election bid in the Senate District 37 race, with no other candidates qualifying. Now, Pizzo is stepping up for his Democratic counterparts in what could be a tough election year, promising $500,000 to Democrats running in contested races.

Loser: Lisa Gwynn. Gwynn, a Miami-based pediatrician, was removed from her position on the Florida Healthy Kids Board of directors over comments criticizing the state’s position on vaccinating kids under 5 against COVID-19. Gwynn said she was advocating for “health equity and children,” while state officials accused her of making “very political statements.”
