Alex Sink Will Run in Competitive Florida House Race
Posted at 9:07 a.m. on Oct. 30, 2013
Former Democratic gubernatorial nominee Alex Sink will run to replace the late Republican Rep. C.W. Bill Young in Florida’s 13th District.
“I never let politics, fingert-pointing or name-calling stand in the way of getting results for the people I represent, and it’s these results-oriented values that I want to bring to Washington,” she said in a statement. “For the sake of our economy, our businesses and our families, we have to restore problem-solving leadership.”
Young died on Oct. 18. It is unclear when the special election will be scheduled for this seat because the governor has not made an announcement yet.
The race is rated Tossup by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.
