Democratic Candidate Alex Sink On Chance Her Party Will Win Back The House: 'Not Happening'

Democratic Candidate Alex Sink On Chance Her Party Will Win Back The House: 'Not Happening'

Democrat Alex Sink, who is running for the seat of the late Rep. Bill Young (R-Fla.), said there's no chance her party will take back control of the House of Representatives this year.

“Not this year,” Sink told the Tampa Tribune's editorial board. “It’s not going this year. So you all shouldn’t write about that because that’s not happening.”


When she announced her candidacy in October 2013, Sink touted that she's "somebody who's solved problems, has a long history of working with Republicans and Democrats to get things done." Sink is running against Republican David Jolly in a special election to be held on March 11.

8. So "not the Republican"? I don't think that's going to inspire many to go to the polls.

11. Our message can be: Repeal Citizens United, Inc.

Bang the drum loudly, and play the pipes brightly.

3. says the idiot who couldn't beat pRick Scott

If you can't beat him, you've no business running for any political office ever again. If she wants to be a Debbie Downer, why not go buy a few beers with her Bank Of America money to cry in.

4. And so she's running why?

Comments like that are what depress turnout. Just what we need to lose!

And they were saying the same crap in 2006. Remember 2006?

5. She is probably trying to give a message to republicans that want to vote for her that a vote

for her won't switch the house.

10. The entire Centrist world is promoting the idea that Democats can not take the House for

'the foreseeable future'. Remember that these same Centrists were in love with Chris Christie and saw him as absolutely undefeatable when in fact he was a pustule of corruption that could have been exposed with a few words. 'Buono is a bad candidate, Christie is very good' they said 'we know where we can win and where we can not' they always say, prior to losing just as many contests as anyone else.....
