The Terminator endorses Crist

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger used Twitter today to announce, "I endorse Gov @charliecristfl for Senate. Great leader, works with both parties, and our country needs someone like him in DC right now."

In his final days as a Republican, Crist said that he had talked with Schwarzenegger and that he urged him to run as an independent. (Background on photo here.)

Marco Rubio's campaign had some fun with the matter. "When it comes to inflicting ‘Collateral Damage’ on the economy, Charlie Crist and Arnold Schwarzenegger are definitely ‘Twins.’ Charlie’s flip-flops have made him a master at telling ‘True Lies.’ We all know the only thing Charlie cares about is the next election. But this year, Florida will take an ‘Eraser’ to ‘The Running Man.’ ”
