Finger Pointing Between Gubernatorial Hopefuls

May 13th, 2009 by flanews

Florida’s Chief Financial Officer is officially making at run at the governor’s seat. The announcement comes as the other two members of the state cabinet consider jumping into the race 2010 Governor’s race. More announcements are expected soon, but as Whitney Ray tells us, the finger pointing has already begun.

Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink wants your vote for governor.

“I’m very excited to have the opportunity to run for governor in 2010,” said Sink.

Announcements from Commissioner of Agriculture Charles Bronson and Attorney General Bill McCollum are coming soon.

The official announcements are only a formality, the battle has already begun.

Sink is calling McCollum on the carpet over a 2 million dollar no bid contract to his former political consultant for this public service announcement.

“There are plenty of other companies that would have appreciated doing that business,” said Sink.

McCollum is firing back.

“Before she points the finger at a no bid contract, which is perfectly legal as former Attorney Genera Butterworth says, she ought to look at here own. She has plenty of no bid contracts there,” McCollum said.

The three sitting cabinet members will have to make joint decisions over the next 18 months, and with the fireworks that have already begun, the campaign promises to be explosive.
