Herald, Sentinel, Daily News back Sink



Democrat Alex Sink beat out Republican Tom Lee for the endorsements of the Orlando Sentinel, here , the Miami Herald here, and the Naples Daily News here.

"The former Florida president of Bank of America presents a slam-dunk case of why she'd be better able to successfully run the vast department, and her standing on issues from lowering homeowners' insurance rates to advocating sound environmental land purchases bodes better than Mr. Lee's for the state,'' said the Sentinel.

"While both candidates could do the job, our nod goes to Ms. Sink. She has a record of achievement in the private sector, a proven ability to set policy and has led a large organization in a tough environment,'' said the Herald.
