Sink Considering Senate Run, But Focusing on Budget

January 7th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Florida CFO Alex Sink is perhaps the leading Democratic Candidate for the US Senate seat being vacated by Mel Martinez. Former Governor Jeb Bush would have been the leading GOP candidate for the open seat, but Bush said Tuesday he would not run. Sink said she has been too busy dealing with state budget cuts to think much about the Bush decision, but says she is keeping her options open.

I am very seriously considering the US Senate race and because of the distractions here in Tallahassee and my focus on Tallahassee, itll be another several weeks, Sink said.

Besides Sink, at least three Florida Congressmen are thinking about the race on the democratic side. Attorney General Bill McCollum is a leading GOP contender now that Bush is out.
