Alex Sink (D) is still con­sid­er­ing chal­len­ging Rep. Dav­id Jolly (R), but said if she does run again, she will do it this year rather than wait­ing un­til 2016. The Tampa Bay Times gave Sink “un­so­li­cited ad­vice” say­ing her chances would be bet­ter in a pres­id­en­tial elec­tion year, when Demo­crat­ic and in­de­pend­ent turnout will likely be high­er than in a midterm race. But Sink told the stu­dent news­pa­per at Wake Forest Uni­versity, her alma ma­ter, that she won’t run in 2016 “un­less [she’s] run­ning as the in­cum­bent.” (Old, Gold & Black)
