Crist lands Obama's campaign manager, Jim Messina
Jim Messina, who oversaw Barack Obama's presidential runs, has joined Charlie Crist's gubernatorial campaign team.
Crist announed the news this evening via Twitter: "RT to help me welcome
Messina2012 to the People's Team."
A Crist source tells the Buzz that Messina's role will be as an advisor and strategist. He will not be the campaign manager, a position Crist has yet to fill after his first manager, Bill Hyers, left before he even officially starting.
Gov. Rick Scott began to fill out his re-election team last week.
