in Uncategorized by

Former Republican governor Charlie Crist  — looking to return to his old job as a Democrat — will spend the last 24 hours of the primary race in a final frenzied push to reach out to volunteers and voters at several get-out-the-vote events statewide.

The statewide pre-primary tour will hit five cities in one day, with stops in Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando, Wellington and Ft. Lauderdale. At each stop, Crist will visit a phone bank or canvass organized in advance of Tuesday’s Primary Election.

Crist’s GOTV tour starts at 9 a.m. with seniors at an event at Rosalind Villas, 1800 Edgewood West in Jacksonville, followed by 11 a.m. phone bank and canvass event at the Tampa field office, 3105 West Waters Avenue.

For the afternoon, Crist will visit three more GOTV events: 12:50 p.m. at the East Orlando field office, 11701 Orpington Street in Orlando; 2:45 p.m. at the Wellington field office, 12794 West Forest Hill Boulevard, Suite 14; and the tour will finish at 4:20 p.m. in Ft. Lauderdale at the Sistrunk field Office, 1033 Northwest Sistrunk Boulevard.
