Alex Sink introduces running mate Rod Smith

WEST PALM BEACH Democrat Alex Sink's first opportunity to showcase running mate Rod Smith was both a cheerleading session for the party ticket and target practice on the bickering Republicans.

Appearing Thursday for the first time since she announced Smith would be her lieutenant governor choice, Sink criticized her potential opponents Republicans Bill McCollum and Rick Scott for "bickering'' and "personal attacks."

"I'm fed up with the lack of leadership, partisanship and absence of direction," said Sink, echoing a television ad she has been running since Sunday.

Sink told a room full of loyal Democrats at a brief event at the Palm Beach Police Benevolent Association Hall in West Palm Beach that given the challenges that face Florida, "there is no time for partisanship, special interests, or personal agendas."

Smith, a former Gainesville state senator and former Alachua County state attorney, gave the more fiery and colorful speech. He joked about how his oldest son was busy explaining to judges why his father wouldn't be in the courthouse for the next few weeks or months which prompted Sink to interrupt with "years."

Excellent choice that could help the Dems grab the Governors mansion.

I supported Smith when he ran in the primary in 2006 against Jim Davis.

He was also the prosecutor who convicted Ted Bundy.
