Sink to release tax returns; Scott agrees to two debatesby Dara Kam | September 8th, 2010
Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink will release her and husband Bill McBride’s tax returns for the past five years next week.
Sink, the Democrat’s nominee for governor, is challenging GOP opponent Rick Scott, the self-made billionaire who made his fortune in the health care industry, to do the same.
Scott, who self-funded his primary campaign against Attorney General Bill McCollum, refused to release his tax returns when McCollum challenged him to do so earlier this summer.
Meanwhile, Scott has agreed to two debates next month with Sink, who asked for five debates before the Nov. 2 election.
Scott agreed to a debate Oct. 20 in Davie sponsored by Leadership Florida and the Florida Press Association and another on Oct. 25 in St. Petersburg sponsored by the St. Petersburg Times and CNN and moderated by CNN host John King.
