Charlie Crist lands speaking spot at AFL-CIO convention

in Statewide by

From the Palm Beach Post: The Florida AFL-CIO just announced the list of speakers for its convention this weekend in Jacksonville, where the state’s biggest labor movement will decide which candidates to endorse (and support financially) in the 2010 elections.

Here’s the schedule of speakers:

Ted Deutch, Friday, 2 p.m.
Charlie Crist, Friday, 2:30 p.m.
Scott Maddox, Saturday, 9 a.m.
Kendrick Meek, Saturday, 9:30 a.m.

That’s right, Charlie Crist.

You’ve got to think that anything less than full support for Meek is more trouble for him.
