Sink touts latest endorsements for governor bid

CFO Alex Sink, vying to be Florida's next governor, just sent out a release announcing she has the support of all 10 Democrats in the Florida Congressional delegation. The endorsements give her support from D.C.-based lawmakers representing north, Central and South Florida.

"Like so many Floridians I am pleased to hear the great news that Alex Sink is running for Governor," U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor is quoted in the campaign release. "We need Alex to continue to be a watchdog for Florida's resources and stand up for all of us against the special interests in Tallahassee.  I am personally pleased that we can continue our partnership, working to expand health insurance for children, and fighting for seniors to stop Medicare fraud."
Joining Castor, a Democrat representing District 1 that includes Tampa, in endorsing Sink are:

U.S. Rep. Allen Boyd (FL - District 2
U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown (FL - District 3)
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL - District 11) 
U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson (FL - District 8)
U.S. Rep. Alcee L. Hastings (FL - District 23)
U.S. Rep. Ron Klein (FL - District 22) 
U.S. Rep. Suzanne Kosmas (FL - District 24) 
U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek (FL - District 17)
U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL - District 20) 
U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler (FL - District 19)

"There are few elected officials who are as impressive as Alex Sink and I am proud to endorse her for Governor," Wexler said.  "As CFO, she utilized her years of business experience to save Floridians money and safeguard their investments.  As Governor, she will have the leadership skills and knowhow to rebuild Florida's economy and get our state moving again."
