Sink Will Run for Congress

Alex Sink (D) confirmed to the Tampa Bay Times that she is jumping into the race to succeed late Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-FL) and will move into the district "imminently."

Said Sink: "Washington's broken. And I, like everybody else I know, is angry and mad about the logjam, about shutting down the government, about not understanding the impact it was going to have on small businesses and people. The people up there just don't seem to be able to work together."

"The offices of the governor and Pinellas elections supervisor are looking at scheduling the primary for Jan. 14 and the general election for March 11, though nothing has been finalized. The winner of that special election could face another election less than six months later -- an Aug. 26 primary, then a general election on Nov. 4, 2014."
