Jeb Bush: 'Gov. Crist has let us down'



Former Gov. Jeb Bush, on the campaign trail Monday with Republican candidate for governor Bill McCollum, had some choice words about his successor, Charlie Crist

"Experience matters," Bush told reporters. "You don't want to be bending to the popular winds. We've had a governor that's done that, and I think this state is adrift because of it. I honestly believe that Gov. Crist has let us down, because he pursued his own personal ambitions at the expense of really digging in to figuring out how to get the state moving again. That's my own personal opinion, and I don't think Bill McCollum is that kind of politician."
