Pinellas teachers endorse Sink, Rubio stumps for Jolly



The Pinellas Classroom Teachers Association has endorsed Alex Sink, the Democratic candidate for Pinellas County's open congressional seat.

   “With her years of experience as a business leader and as Florida’s Chief Financial Officer – and a proven record of fighting for public education – we are proud to endorse Alex Sink and are confident Alex will take the voices of teachers, students and parents to Washington,” said Kim Black, president of the PCTA.

   Meanwhile, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio will be in Pinellas today for a discussion on senior issues alongside Republican congressional candidate David Jolly.

   Sink, Jolly and Libertarian Lucas Overby are candidates in the 13th Congressional District, and face off in a special election march 11.
