Milligan endorses Sink



Former Republican comptroller Bob Milligan today threw his endorsement to Democratic chief financial officer candidate Alex Sink: “There is no doubt in my mind that with her 25 years of financial leadership, Alex Sink is the most qualified candidate to be Florida’s next Chief Financial Officer,” said General Milligan.  “I’d rather have an experienced banker and businesswoman watching over my money than a politician any day.”

Did Milligan miss the memo on this being Republican unity day? "Yes, he must have,'' said Gov. Jeb Bush. "Bob milligan has been marching to a different beat for a long time.... ...Tom Lee is significantly better and more able to take on that job than Alex."

Tom Lee said he hadn't heard about the endorsement, but "I know he's a marine and he goes back a long way with Bill McBride."
