Florida CFO and Democratic candidate for governor Alex Sink has released a new television ad responding to GOP candidate Rick Scott’s television ad attacking her for getting President Obama’s endorsement Tuesday.

“Unfortunately, Rick Scott seems to think that running for governor is all about President Obama. That’s a big difference between us,” she says. The sink isn’t necessarily distancing herself from President Obama but saying that he shouldn’t be a focus of the campaign. On policy, she did differ from the president today by calling for the extension of all of the Bush tax cuts, not just the middle-class tax cuts as Obama has advocated.
