Bill Clinton cuts a GOTV ad for Charlie Crist

in Uncategorized by

Former President Bill Clinton has cut an ad for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist.

According to Florida Times-Union reporter Tia Mitchell, who with story scored her first scoop (of many to come) for the T-U since becoming its new capital bureau chief, the ad, titled “Look,” will appear in every TV market and “is intended to help the Republican-turned-Democrat close the deal with voters leading to Election Day.”

The script:

“A governor who fights for those at the very top or a governor who fights for families like yours, that’s the choice. Charlie Crist is known as the ‘people’s governor’ because he really cares about making your life better. Look, he didn’t cause the Great Recession, but he did work hard to get folks back to work. And he cut property taxes and put more into schools. He got things done by bringing people together. It can be that way again. I hope you will stand with Charlie; he needs your vote today.”
