Crist Makes It Official
Crist also showed his skill at finessing the personal question. He dismissed comments by Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, a Gallagher ally who said Floridians should have a traditional family including a First Lady in the governor's mansion (Crist, a bachelor, is divorced).
"What people want in a public servant is somebody who understands them. Somebody who listens to their concerns, somebody who fights for the people of Florida," Crist said.
"What do we do for a First Lady if you're elected?" reporter Rick Flagg asked Crist.
"What do we do? We look for one," Crist said. "If you've got some ideas, Rick, you let me know."
