GOP calls Alex Sink racist



Congressional District 13 in Pinellas County has few Hispanic voters, but Republican activists and operatives are taking to social media to blast Alex Sink for having said in a debate Tuesday that, unlike David Jolly, she supports a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. She also said many employers rely on immigrants to work in hotel and landscape jobs.

"Alex Sink's comments are as shocking as they are narrow-minded. Floridians are people who want to work hard to make their dreams come true, and in our state no dream is out of reach. For Alex Sink to make such an implication about those who immigrate to Florida is insulting," said Florida GOP Chairman Lenny Curry.
