Alex Sink's fundraising cutting into GOP territory.

For the first time since the GOP won control of Florida's government in the mid 1990s, the Democratic Party and its leading candidate for governor together raised more money than their Republican counterparts at the start of a gubernatorial election season.

Alex Sink, the state's Democratic Chief Financial Officer, raised almost $1.3 million to Attorney General Bill McCollum's $1.04 million, since April 1. The Democratic Party raised nearly $2 million, while the Republican Party of Florida raised almost $1.2 million....

I had no idea he had an arrest record or that he worked for topless clubs.
