Pinellas congressional candidate Alex Sink gets support from Realtors PAC



    Alex Sink, the Democratic candidate for Pinellas County's open congressional seat, has been endorsed by the Realtors Political Action Committee.

   Brandi Gabbard of the Pinellas Realtors said Sink had been a strong leader for Realtors and homeowners, "including leading the charge to ensure that affordable, long-term financing is available to prospective homebuyers.  She has a proven record of working with Republicans and Democrats to get results for Florida families.” 

   Sink said in a statement, “I am proud and grateful to have the support of such large and influential state and national organizations."

   Sink is running for the congressional seat left vacant by the death of longtime republican U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young.

   There is a Jan. 14 primary on the Republican side with candidates Mark Bircher, Kathleen Peters and David Jolly. The GOP winner will go on to face Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby in the March 11 general election.

 The 13th Congressional District runs from south Pinellas to Dunedin, with portions of downtown and southern St. Petersburg cut out.
