Gov. spends day with president



As Buzz types this, Gov. Charlie Crist is riding in a limousine with President George W. Bush.

The governor is attending RNC fundraisers with the president and the two will tour the Blount Island Marine Terminal together, Crist's spokeswoman confirmed.

This could be some of the longest one-on-one time the two have had since Crist became governor.

Relations between their advisers had been tense, due to a 2006 snub, when then-candidate Crist skipped the president's rally in Pensacola right before the election, a decision that angered Karl Rove.
