Just as Charlie Crist joins the Democrats and talk builds about his potential candidacy for governor in 2014, former Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink is raising her own profile, reports Lloyd Dunkelberger,

Democrats said Sink, who lost to Gov. Rick Scott in 2010 and is seriously considering a rematch in 2014, will be among a group of Floridians on a phone call with the press on Wednesday urging congressional leaders to reach agreement on extending tax cuts for “middle-class Floridians.”

Here is a portion of the release:

Former Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink will join Floridians on a press call on Wednesday, December 12th at 10:30 a.m. to urge congressional leaders to take action so middle-class Floridians do not see their taxes go up next year. On January 1, income taxes are scheduled to go up for 7.6 million middle-class Florida families, and tax cuts such as the expanded Child Tax Credit, the 10 percent tax bracket, marriage penalty relief, and the American Opportunity Tax Credit all expire.
