Alex Sink for Gov?



Alex Sink may be planning to stick around and run for governor.
Jim Cassady, the former Bank of America executive and longtime associate of Sink's, seemed to be confirming the speculation Friday as he spoke to Capital Tiger Bay.
Cassady, now chief of staff at the Department of Financial Services, was a last minute stand-in for Sink who was flying around the state with Gov. Charlie Crist to inspect storm damage.
He suggested Tiger Bay members might want to keep an eye on future meetings between the governor and cabinet now that Sink is the only Democrat on board.
""I think cabinet meetings this year and going forward over the next several years, four years, eight years, 16 – I didn’t say that - are going to be interesting,'' Cassady said.
Let's see. Eight years as chief finance officer and then eight years as governor?
