Crist misses Orlando public event with Obama but not fundraising



Charlie Crist will not appear with President Obama, who is in Orlando now for a public event on women's economic issues. But Crist will be at a fundraiser tonight in Miami.

Reporters traveling with Obama to Orlando asked why Crist would not appear in Orlando and spokesman Jay Carney demurred, referring questions to Crist's campaign.

Crist spokesman Kevin Cate tells us: "It's well known that the president and Governor Crist are personal friends. He enjoys spending time with him - will today, and will in the future."

Cate cited scheduling reasons, without specifying what.
