Mount Airy, N.C., is probably saying, thank you Florida voters -- thanks to you, we got to put on a pretty darn good wedding.
If Democrat Alex Sink had defeated Rick Scott in 2010, Sink, with her husband Bill McBride at her side, would have been the governor of Florida today, and probably -- though there's no telling for sure -- her daughter Lexi McBride would have been married in Florida.
Florida is, after all, as Sink often chirped, "truly paradise." Surely it would be bad form for a governor's daughter to marry three states away.
But voters didn't elect Sink, so Lexi was free to marry Douglas Crawford at her family's Mount Airy family farm.
Just wondering, though: Thinking about Attorney General Pam Bondi's "almost" wedding
in the Cayman Islands in May -- doesn't anybody get married in Florida anymore?
According to the Tampa Bay Times
, the McBride-Crawford wedding took place June 2 at Hollyview Farm, in Sink's family since the 1840s.
