Sink: "of course" I'm seriously considering Senate run

Asked if she will run for Mel Martinez soon-to-be-vacant Senate seat, State Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink said "I don't know."

Is she seriously considering it? "Of course. Shouldn't I?" Sink said. She said she'd decide sometime after the New Year and news of former Gov. Jeb Bush considering a run wouldn't be a big factor.

"The decision for me will be a very personal decision," Sink said, walking back to her office Thursday afternoon after having lunch at Andrew's Capital Grill & Bar.

If Sink and Bush decide to run, it'll be personal. Sink's husband, Bill McBride, was beaten badly in 2002 in his run against Bush, who won by about 13 percentage points.
