Crist

  • Expect more of the campaign ad style attacks in the next debate between Governor Rick Scott and challenger Charlie Crist.
  • Incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott is facing off with former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist — who's now running as a Democrat. The race is close, expensive and nasty, with a deluge of attack ads.
  • Like a high-speed train running off the rails, last week the specter of High Speed Rail reared its futuristic caboose again, this time with more promises from Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist that all is not lost.

  • Charlie Crist was in Orlando on Tuesday, where he talked about education spending in Florida with Hispanic community leaders.
