Florida’s political boogeyman is trying to win his congressional race by tying his opponent, Rep. David Jolly (R), to Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump.Charlie Crist, who nowadays seems to be running out of political parties to run for office with, is out saying that Jolly supports Trump presidential candidacy. Crist made the accusation on primary election night, prompting Jolly to take issue, pointing out Crist’s long history of taking political cash from Trump.
Jolly, who isn’t backing Trump, and may not vote for him later this year, called Crist’s attempt to tie him to Trump as being the “height of hypocrisy,” considering all of the dollars that Crist has received from “The Donald” himself.
Team Crist responded to Jolly by stating he was the only candidate in the race that has recently stated he ‘has a lot of respect’ for Trump.
Jolly countered by saying that Crist was just being Crist.
One thing is for sure, no one can say that David Jolly supports Hillary Clinton. On the other hand, Crist has backed President Obama’s play since 2009, and is predicting a Clinton victory over Trump in Florida.
“This is typical Charlie…In his very first statement of the general election campaign, he hides his own past with Trump and lies about mine.”-Rep. David Jolly (R) (TB Times)
Here is then-Conservative Republican Crist in 2010 pronouncing his pro-Conservative, anti-Clinton/Obama agenda bona fides.
More fun and games to follow. I can assure you that.
