Crist snubbing Giuliani?



That's what we wondered when we saw that Charlie Crist had cancelled longstanding plans to appear at the Orange County Lincoln Day dinner featuring Rudy Giuliani Saturday to attend instead the Pinellas Lincoln dinner featuring John McCain (and Marco Rubio).

"I hope that's why, but I don't think so,'' said Orange County GOP chairman Lew Oliver, who is McCain's regional chairman. More likely, Oliver said, Crist simply wanted to ramp up attendance in his home county's Lincoln Day dinner. Hmmm. Or maybe Crist wanted to keep an eye on Rubio in his backyard.
