Sink: 'Open mind' on November run



Alex Sink said today she is "keeping an open mind" about running against David Jolly again in November.

Two days after her narrow loss to Jolly in the special election for Congressional District 13, Sink said she has no timetable for making a decision but is in no rush to decide.

She had not returned calls and messages after the election so we stopped by her rented condo in Feather Sound. Sink, a longtime Hillsborough resident Jolly had called a carpet bagger, chuckled at hearing I expected her to be back in Thonotosassa.

"Why wouldn't I be here? My lease runs until November."

Sink said she all along it would be a tough race and took nothing for granted.

"It's a 50-50 district but it still leans right because of gerrymandering," Sink said. "But I still think Washington is broken and needs better people."
