Alex Sink Concedes Fla. Gov. Race to Rick Scott

Wednesday, 03 Nov 2010 10:59 AM

 

TAMPA, Fla.  — Democrat Alex Sink has conceded the Florida governor's race to Republican Rick Scott.

Earlier Wednesday, Scott's campaign called a win by Sink "a mathematical impossibility."

Scott, 57, is a multimillionaire who jumped into the Republican primary race in April with an antiestablishment message and tea party backing. Sink is the state's chief financial officer. She worked for 26 years in the banking business, eventually becoming one of the state's most prominent businesswomen.

Scott will replace Gov. Charlie Crist, who eschewed a second term to run for U.S. Senate. He lost Tuesday to Marco Rubio.

Scott will be sworn in Jan. 4.
