Jeb Still on Fence



Gov. Jeb Bush still isn't taking sides in the GOP gubernatorial race. Asked Monday if he thought Charlie Crist's double-digit lead in most polls made him a shoe-in over Tom Gallagher, Bush said no.

"I think Charlie has run a really good campaign but you have to finish strong. We have two really good candidates that are both better than the other party. One will win and we will unite behind that person and get them elected governor.

"It depends on what happens in the next month. It’s not over by any stretch of imagination," Bush told reporters. "But General Crist has done a really good job campaigning."
