DSCC: Charlie Crist is another GOP quitter



The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has a new web ad up bashing Charlie Crist for not seeking a second term. “Republicans seem to be making a habit out of abandoning their posts when the times get tough,” said DSCC Communications Director Eric Schultz.  “Charlie Crist created an enormous economic mess in Florida, and is now fleeing at the first chance he gets.”

“First it was President Bush, now it’s Governor Palin – when will the Democrats stop trying to turn Republican candidates into other people and finally focus on the critical issues facing America, like bipartisan health care reform and skyrocketing unemployment?," said NRSC spokeswoman Amber Wilkerson. "Obviously the Democrats are nervous about Governor Crist’s candidacy if they’re spending this much time lobbing these pathetic attacks instead of figuring out how to turn our nation’s economy around. Perhaps they should redirect their energies toward accomplishing something positive for the American people.”
