Frist -- Rhymes With Crist
If you blinked, you might have missed it. But U.S. Sen. Bill Frist, R-Tenn., the outgoing Senate majority leader, whisked through Tampa Bay over the weekend to attend a campaign fund-raiser for Attorney General Charlie Crist. The event was held at the Tampa home of A.K. Desai, a major Crist fund-raiser.
These aren't exactly the best of times for Senator Frist. The Congress adjourned without passing an immigration bill, ethics reforms, or restrictions on pork-barrel projects known as earmarks. And the GOP could lose its Senate majority on Nov. 7, and one of the seats in play is in Frist's home state, Tennessee.
