UPDATE: Atwater said he left the bank in February and his campaign spokesman, Rick Wilson, said that he was never on the loan or investment committees. Rather, he worked to get new clients and customers.

Riverside National Bank is among the seven weakest banks in Florida, according to a new analysis. Senate President and Republican CFO candidate Jeff Atwater is Riverside's market president for Palm Beach and Broward counties.

Nationwide, 82 banks and seven thrifts across the U.S. failed to hold the amount of money required by regulators, according to a full set of preliminary regulatory data for banks and savings and loans in the first quarter. (the list is here.)
