Alex Sink endorsed by Emily's List

It's not a surprising endorsement but it could be a meaningful one - The fundraising powerhouse known as Emily's List is endorsing Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink for governor in 2010. "Florida is ready for a fresh start and there is no better candidate for the job than Alex Sink," says Emily's List President Ellen Malcolm. The endorsement could mean millions of dollars for Sink's campaign. But it is also likely to be used as a line of attack by Republican rival Bill McCollum, who may try to paint her as beholden to out-of-state, abortion rights interests. Emily's List only supports female, pro-choice candidates.
