With less than a month before election day, Governor Chris Christie (R) has decided to fly south from chilly New Jersey to campaign for Florida Governor Rick Scott.
Before heading down to Miami, the two governor’s stopped by Scott’s Boca Raton campaign office, which is run by staffer Nicole Gomez, and were greeted dozens of supporters, as well as a few “colorful” protesters.
A couple of Scott’s supporters confused two of women waiving anti-Common Core signs as being Crist supporters, but as soon as the governor arrived, those Scott supporters quickly learned that the sign-waivers were actually supporting the governor.
However, as far as the four individuals waiving Charlie Crist for Governor signs, there was little confusion, as to who they were supporting.
Always curious to what know and understand what protestors are upset or passionate about, I made my way over to the small group and proceeded to engage them in conversation.
I asked one Crist supporter about how he could support the one-time conservative “Chain gang Charlie” after he flip-flopped on virtually all of the same issues that Rick Scott currently supports.
Here is what he said:
If the guy has changed, if the guy has changed his position, if the guy has seen on the road to Tarsus he has been converted, I can live with it.
The same man then gave a not-so-ringing endorsement of the Republican-turned-Independent-Democrat Charlie Crist.
“Is he the best guy the Democrats, or the best gal, the Democrats could choose, probably not…”
Governor Christie threw a little red meat to the GOP faithful by telling them that Crist was just a “slick mudslinging politician” with “no vision for the future, before reminding them what they could expect from Crist during the upcoming gubernatorial debates.
There’s going to be no better debater than the Democratic side than Charlie Crist, because he’s done it before, and Charlie’s done it from every position you can do it from. Charlie knows every argument. He knows the Republican argument, he knows the Democrat argument, he knows the Independent argument.-Gov. Chris Christie
