ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Alex Sink is telling Democrats she's not going away.
Sink, who narrowly lost her bid for governor in November, told party activists at a meeting in Orlando Saturday that she's going to be beside them as they work to regain ground in 2012.
Afterward, the former bank president said she wanted to start a nonpartisan policy institute to conduct research on ways to help small businesses and entrepreneurs. The former state chief financial officer said there are conservative think tanks that do research and promote policy, but Florida would benefit from an organization that takes a more moderate approach.
She also said she won't rule out running for office again if the right opportunity comes up.
