Winner: Palm Beach County Republicans.

Voters last week reshaped their embattled School Board, which featured several temporary appointees of Gov. Ron DeSantis following suspensions. But in the final meeting of the DeSantis-majority Board, members ousted Superintendent Vickie Cartwright, without waiting for the new Board to take over. Whether justified or not, this should’ve waited until voters’ selections weighed in.
