Yes, friends. Even after the parade of newspaper recommendations we noted here yesterday, there are still some to pass along on this Monday morning.

The Melbourne-based Florida Today is recommendating it's readers to vote for Democrat Alex Sink for Chief Financial Officer, saying that "voters have a clear choice between a financial expert with a record of accomplishment and a politician who has been part of the state leadership as the insurance disaster has grown worse".

In the state capitol, the Tallahassee Democrat makes it's choice in the Attorney General's race, State Senator Walter G. "Skip" Campbell, "because of his proven ability to foster bipartisanship and his record in private life as a top-flight attorney...As a senator, Mr. Campbell was considered his party's expert on open-government legislation - expertise that would serve the public well should he succeed Charlie Crist as attorney general".

And, in what it calls a "tough choice", the Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers --- a group that includes publications in Stuart, Port St. Lucie, Vero Beach, Fort Pierce, Jupiter, and Sebastian --- asks the questions about the governor's race: "Charlie Crist has been running for governor for eight years. Is he for real? Jim Davis has spent 20 years as a legislator; is he ready for prime time?" In the end, it notes that "At this stage, the best selection is Crist".
