Dem Sink launches first ad

Democrat Alex Sink launched her first ad on Wednesday, a positive bio spot that features her dad ribbing her for her “stubborn” insistence on running for Congress.

The ad comes the morning after David Jolly, a former staffer to the late Rep. Bill Young, won the Republican nomination to pursue his old boss’ seat. And it’s an attempt to frame Sink as a bipartisan bridge-builder, in contrast to a gridlocked Congress.

“When my daughter Alex told me she was running for Congress, I tried to talk her out of it — but she’s stubborn,” Kester Sink says at the opening of the ad.

He adds: “I told her nothing gets done in Washington.”

Sink responds: “I’ve always gotten things done by working with people you don’t always agree with.”
