Charlie Crist Wants to Make Florida Feel Good (and Win an Election)
He used to be a Republican, and he used to rule Florida from the governor’s mansion. Now Charlie Crist’s a Democrat running for his former job. Never a true conservative, he broke left when the Tea Party forced the GOP right. He’s credited with helping give Florida to President Obama and swing the last national election. But he’s also accused of just telling people what they want to hear — and sometimes doing the opposite. The question is: Is he truly devoted to serving Floridians and speaking for their needs? Or is he just another political opportunist changing with the tides?
