In explaining why he left GOP, Crist invokes 'my friend' Jeb Bush



Charlie Crist spoke with CNN's Piers Morgan on Wednesday and again invoked Jeb Bush in an attempt to explain why he left the GOP. Crist cites extremism but neglects to say that he left the GOP because Marco Rubio had overrun his chances at the U.S. Senate.

UPDATE: Kristy Campbell, a spokeswoman for Bush, writes: "Charlie Crist is a habitual opportunist with zero credibility. Florida voters understood that in 2010 and will once again confirm it in November."
