Gov candidates visit the faithful: Sink to churches, Scott to church then football



 It's two Sunday's away from Election Day and do you know where your candidates are? Democrat Alex Sink and Republican Rick Scott were in church this morning, visiting congregations in Miami and Orlando.

Scott attended the El Rey Jesus Church in Miami, a Christian Pentecostal Church with one of the largest Hispanic followings in the country. Scott then continued greeting the faithful, this time football worshippers, with a visit to the Miami Dolphins game. His escort reportedly was Ron Book, the Tallahassee uber-lobbyist.

Sink attended the two predominately African-American churches in Orlando, the Carter Tabernacle Church and the New Life Church of God and Christ, speaking to the congregations as she has done at churches for the past several Sundays, her campaign said. She then greeted supporters in Orlando this afternoon.
