No GOP unity for this list of Republican officials -- who endorsed Sink



As Republican Rick Scott tours the state with the top Republican officials Tuesday for a unity rally intended to heal their internecine primary wounds, Democrat Alex Sink sent out this little list. It's the names of Republican elected officials from South and Central Florida who have endorsed Sink's gubernatorial campaign:

West Palm Beach City Commission president Kimberly Mitchell, Orlando City Council member Tony Ortiz, Okeechobee County Sheriff Paul May, Bradenton Mayor Wayne Poston, Aventura City Commissioner Luz Weinberg, Fort Pierce Mayor Bob Benton, Palmetto Commissioner Brian Williams, Belleair Commissioner Tom Shelly, Atlantic Beach Mayor Mike Borno and Ocala City Council member Mary Rich.

 "Alex Sink has the experience and problem-solving approach that we need in our next Governor," Mitchell said in a statement.  "Sink understands the needs of Florida's business owners and will make sure the Florida's small businesses have the right support to thrive and grow."
