Skip to comments.Alex Sink Passes on Second Try for FL-13 Seat
Posted on 04/15/2014 11:00:37 AM PDT by Hojczyk
Democrat Alex Sink is opting out of Round 2 in the battle for the House seat in Floridas 13th Congressional District. Her decision comes a month after she narrowly lost to Republican David Jolly in a special election that offered early warning signs about her partys vulnerabilities in the fall midterms.
Sink was considered a top recruit for the fall race, and Democrats had hoped the well-known state official and former gubernatorial candidate would run again for the seat. Party officials insisted that turnout would be higher in November than it was in March, which theoretically would help Sink catch and surpass Jolly.
Republicans called Sinks decision a recruiting fail of the Democrats campaign arm. These candidates who live outside the beltway understand what Obama and the DCCC [dont] -- their continued devotion to ObamaCare is not only costing them votes, it is costing them their star candidates, said National Republican Congressional Committee spokeswoman Andrea Bozek.

She is hoping to get a job with Charlie Crist if he wins
Looks like somebody got the campaign funding rug pulled out from underneath her.
Sink has consistently done things that would be good for future political runs. If she were to lose twice in a row she could become a political has-been as Democrats are not big on supporting losing candidates. She’s lost too many times since moving out of her state gov position. She sees this as another loss for whoever takes it. And, the Dems don’t have another well-known name to run in the post.
Dems would be better off running Bill’s previously beaten Democratic opponent whose name was Urlich. She’s young and has no reputation but she did get 40% against Bill. Either that, or they could just let Jolly run unopposed...(Yes!)
Alex Sink - Florida’s Biggest Loser
He beat her by almost 2%. That’s “barely won?”
She figured it out.
1. She knows she'll become a three-time loser.
2. Another Rep is about to die somewhere else in FL.
3. She's eloping with Bob Shrum.
She may be smarter then most dems, she learned you can Run but you can’t Hide.
Sink needs to try something other than elected office. She’s far from being one of the worst people in the Democrat party. She just is a terrible candidate
Alex Sink ist sperlos versenkt. (Fate of many German U-Boats in WWII)
If Orange skinned Charlie wins against Rick Scott, I’m moving to Maine. Rick Scott is better than Jeb and Christ.
On an even playing field, I do not see this happening. Then again, I was fooled in 2012 by Obama, the proven liar's victory.
You’d better make sure Gov. Paul LePage pulls out a second term, because there’s an equally (but non-Orange) appalling leftist poof (Mike Michaud) running up there. Hopefully both Michaud and the Orange Menace are stomped.
