Alex Sink Ends Special Election Campaign With Positive Spot
Posted at 10:34 a.m. on March 5
In what is likely her final ad in the special election for Florida’s 13th District, the Democrat nominee, Alex Sink, struck a bipartisan tone in positive spot that started to air Wednesday.
Polls show Sink in a virtual tie with the GOP nominee, lobbyist David Jolly, in the race to replace the late Rep. C.W. Bill Young, R-Fla.
In this high-stakes special election race, both sides have engaged in negative campaigning on the airwaves.
But typically, campaigns save a final, positive spot to serve as a final impression for voters. Ad spending in the Tampa-based 13th District is reaching atmospheric levels, but Sink is well-funded to compete.
The race is rated Tossup by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call. Election Day is next Tuesday.
