Alex Sink: I wouldn't wait to veto SB 6



Did the Republicans hand Alex Sink an issue to run on or what? In what we think are her most extensive remarks to date on SB 6, Florida's chief financial officer and Democratic gubernatorial candidate says in this op-ed in today's Huffington Post that the bill shows what hangs in the balance with this year's election.

If I were governor right now, vetoing this bill would be a no-brainer. And that's why I hope you will join me to stop it.

The fight to protect Florida's students and schools also shows clearly what's at stake in the race for governor this year.

My opponent, Republican Bill McCollum, is "applauding" Senate Bill 6 and giving it "two thumbs up". McCollum is making it clear that he does not share Floridians priorities -- which is why it's so important to send a strong signal about who is standing up for Florida's interests and who is in it for their own interests.
