Asked if he was disappointed he was not endorsed by the Florida AFL-CIO, Charlie Crist said:
“I don’t think at all. It would have been nice, obviously, that’s why I went there. But I was awfully proud and pleased to get the teachers’ support. It’s all about getting the support of the people.”
Crist, who wooed the unions at their annual meeting this weekend, said he’d welcome the support of other groups, including environmentalists such as the Sierra Club, according to the Palm Beach Post.
“You know my style. I’ll take help from anyone who’s willing to give it and cares about Florida like we do. That’s what it’s about,” Crist said.
After all, some would argue, it was Crist’s environmental policies which led to his ouster from the Republican Party.
