The Democrats Respond



Florida Democratic Party Chair Karen Thurman writes:

“Tonight, as usual, Charlie Crist and Tom Gallagher focused on shifting their positions to sound more like Jeb Bush, even though both of them have been all over the place on numerous issues. You can’t pin either of these guys down on the issues that matter, and you can’t trust anything either of them says. Their credibility is shot, and the voters saw that front and center tonight.
“Crist-Crossin’ Charlie tried to bob and weave, but Gallagher’s pointed, simple questions clearly rattled him. Crist’s performance tonight was disappointing. People don’t trust politicians that can’t give a straight answer.
“Floridians need a decisive governor with real vision, and neither Republican fits that bill. I look forward to electing Rod Smith or Jim Davis in November.”
