TAMPA, Fla. -- Democratic candidate for governor Alex Sink has fired a staffer who broke the rules by trying to coach her during a debate.

Sink said in a statement that she "immediately removed" from her campaign an aide who tried to communicate with her via a cell phone text message shown to her during a break in Monday night's debate. That broke ground rules that both campaigns had agreed to beforehand.

Her Republican opponent, Rick Scott, mentioned the gaffe when the CNN debate came out of the commercial break, and his campaign fired out press releases to reporters pointing it out.

Sink's campaign did not name the aide.

Scott and Sink mostly traded attacks during the heated debate, the last one before next week's election.
