New Sink spot uses opinion writers' pens to put down Scott



Democrat gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink rolled out her general election campaign promising to attack Florida's problems instead of her Republican opponent. Her latest TV ad has a few choice words for Rick Scott. But the attacks aren't Sink's -- they're culled from the opinion pages of Florida newspapers (including this editorial from the St. Petersburg Times).

Sink's campaign is putting $800,000 behind the TV ad. It's her third on statewide airwaves this week.

Here is Sink's justification for her new spot.
