Direct mail round-up: Some good, some bad for Alex Sink

in Uncategorized by

As the TV commercials, Web banner ads and mailers might suggest, dollars have begun to flow in the special election to fill Pinellas County’s open congressional seat, notes Kate Bradshaw of the Tampa Tribune.

Today’s mail brought some good and some bad for Alex Sink.

First the bad. 

It’s a mailer from the Republican Party of Florida (starring one atrociously fake-looking hand) hitting the familiar notes about Sink using a state plane for personal reasons, as well as some ridiculous charges about Sink getting rich while eliminating jobs while at Bank of America.




And here’s the good; a four-part over-sized brochure that talks about Sink’s work for mailers. Sorry I can’t get all of it to show up, but you get the point. 

By the way, is it me or is Alex Sink a close-talker
