Former Vice President Al Gore is using the Gulf of Mexico oil spill catastrophe as a fundraising device in an e-mail sent Monday for Democrat Alex Sink’s gubernatorial effort in Florida. Gore's e-mail asks for $10 contributions to Sink’s campaign against Republican Rick Scott to succeed Gov. Charlie Crist. Monday was the first day of early voting in Florida, according to The Hill.

“With Early Voting starting today, the reality is that this week could decide the election — which is why Alex needs your help to expand her outreach efforts now,” Gore adds. “This election will go down to the wire, and the $10 contribution you make today — which allows Alex’s campaign to knock on a few more doors or run one more TV ad — could be what decides this election.”
The race continues to be one of the closest gubernatorial contests in the nation, with a recent Rasmussen Report poll showing Scott ahead by three points, 50 percent to 47.
