Sink has $1 million for campaign



The question is what campaign. The Democratic CFO's political folks say she raised $1.12 million during the first two months of her "re-election campaign," and has $1.07 million on hand. We all know, of course, that Sink is poised to shift gears - and money - into a gubernatorial campaign if and when Gov. Charlie Crist announces he's running for the Senate. Between Jan. 26, when she announced her re-election campaign, and March 31, she received more than 2,300 donations.

"Alex Sink starts her re-election campaign in a strong position and will be an extremely formidable candidate in 2010," said David Beattie, a consultant for the Sink campaign. "Alex has made it a priority to fight aggressively against financial waste and abuse, and judging from this first campaign finance report, Floridians feel very positively about the work she has done."
