Good News Keeps Coming for Sink Campaign; Lee's Campaign Suffers Another Disappointment
Continuing to rack the endorsements, Democratic candidate for CFO Alex Sink recently received the endorsement of the usually Republican leaning Associated Builders & Contractors of Florida. This was something of a personal blow for her opponent, Tom Lee, who is himself a builder.
This is also the second public blow Republican Tom Lee's campaign has received recently - the first being his abysmal fundraising numbers. During the last filing period, he raised only $13,985 ($9,500 of which came from employees of a single company - the managed health care giant WellCare) or less than 10% of the $187,896 raised by his Democratic opponent.
“Alex is the more experienced candidate in the CFO race. No one can match her business experience, civic involvement, and management skills,” said the Association's Chairman, David Hamilton. “Florida is lucky to have a person of such high caliber running for office.”
The Builders have also endorsed Republicans Charlie Crist for Governor and Bill McCollum for Attorney General.
