Crawford for Lee



Democrat Alex Sink isn't the only candidate for chief financial officer who can tout bi-partisan support. The day after Republican former comptroller Bob Milligan endorsed Sink,Republican Tom Lee rolled out an endorsement from Democratic former agriculture commissioner Bob Crawford.

"Tom Lee has been an independent-minded and courageous leader who has stood up for consumers - even if that meant bucking his own party,” said Crawford.  “Tom’s experience as a small businessman along with his legislative experience provides the right combination to be an effective cabinet member.  The broader experience you have, the better equipped you will be to tackle the diverse issues that come before the cabinet.  For that reason, I believe Tom Lee is the most qualified person for the job."
