Democrat Alex Sink won’t go for a rematch against Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) this November.
According to the Tampa Bay Times on Tuesday Sink has decided not to run for Congress again in 2014.
“I am so honored and humbled by the outpouring of support our campaign received, but after reflection with my family I have made a personal decision not to run for the 13th Congressional District seat in the 2014 election,” Sink said according to the Florida newspaper.
Sink was defeated in a high-profile special election for the late C.W. Young’s congressional seat. Some observers considered the election a bellwether for the 2014 midterm elections. Immediately after the special election, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Rep. Steve Israel called Sink about running again in the fall.
