Petitioning to keep Gov. Charlie Crist in Tallahassee



Keepcharlie A group of Republican activists (anti-Jim Greer, if not anti-Charlie Crist), has launched an online peitition to disourage Charlie Crist from running for U.S. Senate:


We need Charlie Crist in Florida. We believe the vast majority of Floridians agree with us. We need Charlie Crist to stay as our Governor and keep his pledge to make property taxes "drop like a stone" and lower Insurance rates. We need Charlie Crist's strong leadership here at home.

Identified leaders of the effort include Martin Stockdale of the Florida Conservative Reform Caucas and Javier Manjarres of Conservative Republican Alliance and Nick Kakanis of Ronald Reagan Young Republican Club

Our hunch is Alex Sink, Bill McCollum and Charles Bronson won't sign. Marco Rubio, Dan Gelber, Kendrick Meek, Jeff Atwater, Adam Hasner, Dave Aronberg, Rod Smith, etc., etc. might be tempted.
