Rod Smith to be Alex Sink's running mate



Sink and Smith Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink is expected to choose Rod Smith, a former state attorney and Gainesville state senator, to be her running mate in the race for governor, with an announcement on Thursday in West Palm Beach.

The choice of Smith comes after a two-month search of candidates that was narrowed to four finalists, including state Sen. Dan Gelber, a Miami Beach Democrat who is in a tight primary battle for attorney general, Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler and Sarasota state Rep. Keith Fitzgerald.
