Alex Sink makes last minute plea for votes by Mitch E.Perry11/07/06
Almost every poll says that the race for FloridaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Chief Financial Officer will come down to the wire between 2 Bay Area moderates, Republican State Senate President Tom Lee, against Thonotassassa Democrat, banker Alex Sink.
This campaign has been best known in the past few weeks with an attack ad on Sink, whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢se tagline on one of her ads, was, elect her and the spending spree stops in Tallahassee.
But an ad by the Florida Republican Party supporting Tom Lee plays back that tagline, and then says that Sink supports tax increases, such as for school tuition. But WMNF asked Alex Sink how this could be, considering sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s never held any type of public office (roll tape#1 o.q.Ã¢â‚¬?very irresponsibleÃ¢â‚¬?)
As the returns begin to roll in tonight, Sink says the first place sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to be looking at are key precincts in the Democrat rich South Florida region (roll tape#2 o.q.Ã¢â‚¬?state businessÃ¢â‚¬?)
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Democrat Alex Sink, running for Chief Financial Officer against Brandon State Senator Tom Lee.
