President Obama Coming to Fontainebleau Next Month for Fundraiser With Alex Sink
The report comes from Naked Politics, which notes the fundraiser comes shortly after the Obama family's previously announced
No one ever counted Sink completely out of the governor's race, but her fortunes have improved lately thanks to the Republican primary battle brewing between previously unopposed Bill McCollum and insurgent billionaire Rick Scott.

An appearance with the president should do wonders to boost her name recognition among Democrats.
The only question NP raises is why Kendrick Meek isn't on the bill. White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel will headline a fundraiser for Meek in D.C. next week, but the POTUS himself hasn't done much heavy lifting for the Senate candidate.
Maybe that's because Meek is now trailing another insurgent billionaire, Jeff Greene, in the Democratic primary. Charlie Crist meanwhile leads the three-way matchup, and D.C. Democrats are rumored to be hopeful they can persuade Crist to caucus with their party if elected.
