Video: Sink final pitch -- get out the vote and overcome turnout gap



The mantra during Democrat Alex Sink's final day of campaigning couldn't have been more consistent: "It's not time to celebrate yet.''

Those were the words Sink delivered to a cheering crowd of supporters in Ybor City, as more than 400 of her sign-waving fans, and the Democrat's full slate of candidates, appeared for an Election Eve rally on her home turf. Two hours later, they were headed for Orlando where former President Bill Clinton will rally with Sink, the gubernatorial candidate, and Democrat Kendrick Meek, the party's nominee for U.S. Senate.

"If you've already voted you're going to go get more of your friends to go out and vote,'' Sink told a packed room of supporters at her campaign's Sarasota headquarters. "That's what it's all about''

With polls showing a very tight race, Sink spent the day campaigning with the party's elders, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and former Sen. Bob Graham.
