Skip to comments.Didn't Sink (D) win Florida's 13th when running for Gov.? Didn't Obama win this district, too?

Hmmm. Nah, there are no national implications here...This was no referendum on ObamaCare, the left's explosion of the size of gov't, etc.
Dems and MSM on television talking to voters: "These are not the droids you are looking for. Move along, move along."
Democrats Florida Freak Out
Yes, Sink did win the district.

An if you are even a little bit liberal Jolly is an unattractive candidate.
Alex Sink electability is down the drain.
It is not that Alex Sink lacked for name recognition in the 13th District.

One of Sink’s biggest crises involved the meltdown of a local government pool, a sort of money-market fund whose investors are cities, counties and school districts. The fund, set up as a low-risk nest egg for local governments’ money, was besieged by withdrawals in 2007 after a series of risky investments led to a raid on the fund, which hastened the resignation of Coleman Stipanovich, chief of the state pension fund.

Ronan Farrow also won that district.
Rick Baker is another RINO, just like Jolly. Jolly is more to the right of Baker.

I know.... That’s why I think the GOPe will try and primary Jolly in Nov....
In their minds the seat is a lock with Baker, Jolly could lose in a general election in Nov. which has a much larger turnout....
If there was a higher turnout with the special election, it would have been much closer, even losing...
