Tampa, Florida -- They were the bombshell words that came out of Rick Scott's mouth: "First Alex, you say you always follow the rules. The rule was no one is supposed to give you messages during the break, and your campaign did with an iPad."

It was the moment in the debate that some believe crushed Alex Sink's campaign. Candidate Rick Scott ratting Sink out to CNN producers during a break in their final debate.

"So we can have people who work for us give us messages?" Scott asked.

Sink later lost the 2010 election. Speculation about a 2014 re-match started up immediately, but Friday that died when Sink announced she won't run.

"All across the country Democrats were losing everything by double digits and the fact that I came that close was a miracle," Sink says of her loss.

When it comes to Gov. Scott, Sink doesn't mince words saying his decisions have cost Florida jobs.

"He's been a huge disappointment in so many areas. Turning down the high-speed rail and 20,000 jobs; not embracing the Medicaid expansion which would have brought in $60,000 into our state," said Sink.

And when asked about who is going to challenge Gov. Scott, she says, "Right now we just have one announced candidate, Sen. Nan Rich, who I consider to be a friend, and there's speculation about Charlie Crist."
