South Florida’s Winner and Loser of the Week

by The 100 Companies

Winner: Palm Beach County GOP

The local party raised an impressive $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2024, thanks to a massive fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago.

Palm Beach County Republican Party Chair Kevin Neal said the total was the highest ever raised by a county-level Republican party in Florida.

Loser: Joe Martinez

Martinez lost a futile effort to get Miami-Dade County Circuit Court Judge Lody Jean thrown off his public corruption trial. An appellate court called the Hail Mary move “legally insufficient.”

Martinez was suspended from the Miami-Dade Commission over the corruption allegations, and now the trial can move forward.
