Former Gov. Charlie Crist faces dismantling of his legacy with a smile
Former Gov. Charlie Crist remains unfailingly cheerful as a new crew at the Capitol rapidly dismantles his legacy on everything from high-speed rail to abortion rights. He says folks ask him all the time, "How are you doing?" He tells them: "I'm doing great!"
He mentions his wonderful time in the private sector with law firm Morgan & Morgan (Time with family! Time in hometown St. Petersburg!) and says he wouldn't have had it any other way. "I can tell you I'm very happy what I'm doing now." Any regrets from his Senate campaign? None whatsoever, he says. Would have done it just the same. "Other than winning would have been nice." But then he'd be "up in cold Washington right now." And he loves Florida! "There's no better place to be!"
Thursday, he shared that message with a mayors' prayer brunch at the Club at Treasure Island.
