An Important Question for Alex Sink
Appeared tonight on WEDU's Florida This Week show (airing again in Tampa Bay at 12:30 p.m. Sun) along with Susan MacManus of USF and former Pinellas GOP chairman Paul Bedinghaus and former Pinellas Democratic Chairman Ramsay McLaughlin. Bedinghaus I think had a very astute comment that I hadn't heard before during a discussion of whether Alex Sink is likely to run again for governor:
"Alex Sink is a terrific lady and a very capable CFO," the former treasurer of the state GOP said. "But when I'm voting for somebody, I don't want to vote for somebody that's a reluctant candidate. I want someone that has the passion in their gut to serve this state. So I think she really has to think that through. The image that she's projecting is that she's a reluctant candidate, and I don't think that's a winning formula.
