RGA labels Sink 'financial disaster' in new ad



UPDATED: A new political committee -- with ties to the Republican Governor's Association -- is poised to hit Democrat Alex Sink with a familiar attack ad.

The group, Florida's Future Fund, is airing virtually the same ad the RGA hit Sink with earlier this year. It suggests she eliminated jobs in her role at Bank of America at the same time she took huge bonuses. ("Not one of us. One of them.") The main change is the tagline, which calls Sink a "financial disaster."

Sink began airing her first TV spot in her bid for governor Sunday, uncontested as Republicans Bill McCollum and Rick Scott duke it out. The RGA will help fill the gap.

No more information is known about Florida's Future Fund -- the group's disclosure is nowhere on the state election site because it is still being processed.
