Alex Sink endorses Amanda Murphy in Pasco House race



Former candidate for governor Alex Sink says she’s endorsing Amanda Murphy in the race to replace Mike Fasano in House District 36.

“Her commitment to community service, her financial training, and her strong business background prepare her to well-represent the families of West Pasco,” Sink said in a statement released by the House Democrats.

Sink, the state’s former chief financial officer, ran for governor in 2010.

Murphy, a Raymond James financial advisor, is running in a special election on Oct. 15 to replace Fasano. Fasano resigned when he was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott to replace county tax collector Mike Olson who died.
