|Alex Sink performs coin toss during 2010 FAMU Homecoming
Democratic candidates usually just come to the FAMU campus wearing Orange & Green and talk broadly about supporting education, but they don’t talk about giving more earmarks to the four HBCUs in the state. The candidates then spend the rest of their visits shaking hands and taking pictures.
This was recently seen in the two failed Democratic gubernatorial campaigns against GOP nominee Rick Scott.
Back in 2010, Democratic nominee Alex Sink walked around saying hello to tailgaters outside Bragg Memorial Stadium and then performed the coin toss to kick off the Homecoming game against Morgan State. But there was no announcement of a spending plan to bring more state money to FAMU, Bethune-Cookman University, Florida Memorial University, or Edward Waters College.
