Amercian Spectator: Please don’t, Charlie Crist

in Statewide by

From American Spectator: Please don’t, Charlie. Please don’t atomize a promising young Republican, who, if he emerges from this primary tested but unscathed, can hold the seat for the party and be a forceful voice for conservative change in Washington. How did these supplicants do? We won’t know for a few weeks, but the early returns are not encouraging. The Governor’s Lincoln Day speech in Nassau County Friday evening was a classic case of Charlie being Charlie. (Nassau County, I…

So far, the great achievements of these two forces…

Houston Chronicle on John Cornyn, Charlie Crist

in Statewide by

Texas Sen. John Cornyn is an upbeat kind of fellow, but when it comes to the Republican Party’s current political standing, he is distinctly downbeat. “I think that we’re at a low ebb,” the San Antonio Republican declares.

10 Things I Think I Think

If Charlie Crist’s all-out TV ad blitz and statewide bus tour didn’t widen the gap between him and Tom Gallagher, the response by Gallagher’s campaign certainly exacerbated the situation. The Gallagher campaign sent protesters to a Crist rally, they distributed a very lame Top 10 list about Charlie’s bus tour, they’ve released useless media bulletins, etc., etc. It’s becoming apparent how bush-league Gallagher’s campaign is being run. Of course, I just hate the message Crist is delivering: “I’m a Ronald…
