RPOF launches anti-Crist website

in Uncategorized by

Today the Republican Party of Florida launched www.CharlieForFlorida.com, a website it says is “devoted to highlighting Charlie Crist’s failures as governor and setting the record straight.” The website currently features Let’s Get to Work’s TV ad “Opportunist,” which highlights Democratic criticism of Charlie Crist, including a statement from former FDP Chairman Karen Thurman when she said, “He has done nothing to create jobs…his only core belief is personal ambition.”

“Throughout his career, Charlie Crist has only been interested in one person – himself. When things got tough in Florida, he abandoned the state to pursue the bright lights of Washington, DC,” said RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry. “During his four-year term 830,000 Floridians lost their jobs, the unemployment rate increased over 7 points, and state debt increased by over $5 billion. This is the record of a failed governor and there is bipartisan agreement that Charlie Crist shouldn’t be governor. If he wants to be governor again why did he quit the first time around?”

Throughout Charlie Crist’s campaign, www.CharlieForFlorida.com will, according to a release from the RPOF, “be dedicated to setting the record straight, using Charlie Crist’s own words and those of other Republicans and Democrats.”
