Senate Prez Don Gaetz: Charlie Crist has no honor

in Uncategorized by

Former Florida Republican Gov. Charlie Crist launched his campaign for his old job Monday and Republican Don Gaetz, President of the Florida Senate, wasted no time in attacking him.

“In four years Charlie Crist switched three times the core principles he said he would be faithful to — Republican then Independent now Democrat,” said Gaetz, in a statement released by the Republican Party of Florida. “In private, Democrats have to be wondering, ‘Will he use us to be something else next year.’ “

Continued Gaetz, “I respect, even honor opponents who stand by their principles. I cannot respect an opponent who has no principles and therefore no honor.”
