May 8: Here's the latest Florida Five from The Daily Buzz:

1. Trump’s decision to exit Iran deal has implications in Florida’s U.S. Senate racePresident Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he will withdraw the U.S. from the Iran nuclear deal — and the issue presents a divide in Florida's Senate race between Bill Nelson and Rick Scott. Read more about Nelson and Scott's history with the deal here. And check out Florida's reaction to President Trump's decision here.

2. Rick Scott’s early, aggressive pace challenges Bill Nelson

A month into their Senate battle — one with implications about the control of power in Washington — Republican Rick Scott has set a torrid pace, forcing the low-key Democrat Bill Nelson into a position he's never faced: playing catch-up. Read the full story about that dynamic here.

3. The man behind the Trump-Bondi controversy just resigned over assault allegations

It didn't take long for New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to resign after the New Yorker published its story on Monday about allegations that he subjected four women to "nonconsensual physical violence". So went an attorney general who once took on Donald Trump in what became a very big deal in Florida.

4. Hurricane 2018: Is Florida better prepared for storms? Not quite.

Hurricane Irma wreaked such havoc on the Sunshine State last year that state lawmakers vowed they would better secure Florida for future storms. Although the Legislature failed to pass many of the bills they identified as essential in accomplishing this, it did pass measures to help the state recover. Read all about them here.

Tuesday's developments in the Florida governor's race include:

-Adam C. Smith arguing why Chris King might be a contender. -Gwen Graham has a message for Attorney General Pam Bondi. -The Miami New Times published a profile of Philip Levine. His opponents are sure to love it.
