Builders back Sink



One might assume that Republican chief financial officer candidate Tom Lee, as a builder, would snag the endorsement of the Associated Builders & Contractors of Florida. But the organization representing 1850 contractors and subcontractors employing more than 100,000 Floridians is endorsing Democrat Alex Sink.

“Alex is the more experienced candidate in the CFO race. No one can match her business experience, civic involvement, and management skills,” said ABC State Chairman David Hamilton.  “Florida is lucky to have a person of such high caliber running for office.”

The group has also endorsed Republicans Charlie Crist for governor and Bill McCollum for attorney general.
