Alex Sink Leads Bill McCollum in Poll for First Time in Months; Too Bad She Still Trails Behind Rick Scott
As Rick Scott and Bill McCollum battle for the Republican nomination in the gubernatorial race, is Democrat Alex Sink silently waiting to pounce?

The same poll also shows Charlie Crist holding on to his lead in the Senate race.
