Alex Sink Joins Charlie Crist in Drawing Fire From Florida Republicans
With buzz growing that former CFO Alex Sink, who lost out to Rick Scott back in 2010 in the closest gubernatorial election in Floridas history, wants a rematch in 2014, the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) is taking aim at her and linking her to a possible Democratic rival. On Wednesday, the RPOF launched an attack trashing the economy when Gov. Charlie Crist and Sink served in Tallahassee. Labeling Crist the captain and Sink the first mate, the RPOF hammered the two Democrats for wrecking Floridas economy.
During most of his tenure as governor, Crist was a Republican with strong GOP majorities in both chambers of the Legislature. Crist left the GOP to run for the U.S. Senate in 2010 with no party affiliation. He joined the Democrats late in 2012 and is widely expected to run forgovernor in 2014. With Crist having a trail of flip-flops during his political career, Sink will have plenty of ammunition to fire away at him in the primary. Despite the RPOFs attack on the Crist-Sink team, if the two politicians battle it out in a primary, Floridians should expect a bloody political season.
