After eight years of failure under Republican governors Charlie Crist and Rick Scott, Florida Democrats have a great opportunity to win back the Governor’s office this year.
But, we have two very different candidates in our primary election. Nan Rich has a long track record as a real progressive, pro-choice Democrat. But so many questions remain about Charlie Crist’s record and his ability to now govern as a progressive. Just three years ago, he called himself an “anti-tax, pro-life, pro-gun Republican.”
Last week, Charlie Crist said that he’s "not even thinking” of debating Senator Rich. Refusing to debate is just wrong – especially when so many questions remain about how recent Republican Charlie Crist will govern. Voters deserve a discussion of the issues before we go to the polls this summer.
How can we trust Charlie Crist to represent our progressive values in the Governor's office, when he won't even defend his self-described "anti-tax, pro-life, pro-gun" record against Democratic primary opponent Nan Rich?
