Sink: Obama is right for Florida

Sink Florida CFO Alex Sink, sounding as much a Hillary Clinton fan as her husband is, endorsed Barack Obama today. Her statement was released on the same day Clinton told supporters to unite around Obama.

"Barack Obama has secured enough delegates to assure him the Democratic nomination for president, and he has my whole-hearted and enthusiastic support. Senator Obama has run an extraordinary campaign and has demonstrated a remarkable ability to bring people together and lead our nation forward.

"In an unprecedented fashion, he has motivated millions of Americans, especially our young people, to participate in the democratic process for the first time. I will do all I can to help him win the presidency and lead the entire Democratic ticket to victory.

"Senator Clinton has run an inspiring campaign. She is one of the most important leaders of our party, and all Democrats should be proud of everything she has accomplished. I know that she will play a critical role in putting our nation on a better path.

"For me and so many Floridians, this election is about making the needed changes that will put our nation on a road to prosperity. I'm confident that Barack Obama will deliver real change Floridians can believe in."
