Alex Sink, former chief financial officer for Florida and 2010 gubernatorial candidate, has set her eyes on a larger role in politics in the U.S. Congress.
Florida’s former chief financial officer Alex Sink said Friday she will not run for the governor’s seat in 2014.
If former Governor Charlie Crist runs for his old job as a Democrat against Republican Governor Rick Scott, Crist would trounce Scott by double-digits, according to the latest poll from Quinnipiac University.
Governor Rick Scott has sought recently to moderate his message and diverge to a degree from his tea party past. But it may not be enough as a new poll shows Governor Scott with a lot of ground to make up against the presumed Democratic nominee Charlie Crist.
A memorial service is scheduled for Friday in Tampa to remember the life of former gubernatorial candidate Bill McBride.
Throughout this week’s gubernatorial debate, Democrat Alex Sink stayed on the attack, questioning the fitness of her Republican rival, Rick Scott.
