No Election Bid From Alex Sink

No Election Bid From Alex Sink

TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) - It was strongly anticipated that former Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink would run for Governor in 2014. 

She won't.

Sink, of Tampa, says she's not planning on another election bid, wanting to spend more time with her Florida Next Foundation which helps young entrepreneurs grow their start up companies.

The announcement means former Florida Governor and Republican-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist won't have strong competition on the Democratic ticket.  He's expected to make an election announcement this fall.

Republican Rick Scott narrowly beat sink, a Democrat, in 2010.
