Alex Sink undecided about another run for governor, is excited about beating Rick Scott

Former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink is deciding on another run for governor, but it might take longer than expected.

At first, Florida’s former CFO was going make her decision by Sept. 1, according to Adam Smith of the Tampa Bay Times, but after a series of family vacations, she “sounds genuinely undecided.”

Saying her kids and 90-year-old father are “not enthusiastic about it,” Sink nonetheless is excited about beating her 2010 rival, Gov. Rick Scott. That energy to try again against Scott is what is priming her for another campaign.

“It’s going to come down to a very personal decision, and the thing that keeps my interested is that every single day I read another headline about something else this governor has done that is ridiculous and stupid and not in the best interest of Floridians” Sink told the Times. “I can’t tell to you angry I am that people of Florida have to endure this failed leadership.”

Although she states that it would have nothing to do with the timing of her decision to run, Sink assumes former Gov. Charlie Crist will also join the 2014 race.
