Crist on O'Reilly denies changes on abortion



Charlie Crist appeared on the O'Reilly Factor tonight and declared, "I really haven't changed that much. My former party changed. And what happened is the tea party emerged ..."

O'Reilly challenged Crist on abortion, noting that he once supported a ban except for incest or rape. "That's a pretty big change," O'Reilly says. "Not really," replies the former Republican governor. Watch for Crist's explanation. (And for some background, the Republican Party of Florida helpfully reminded us of this 2006 story that tracked Crist's views on abortion.)

Crist said he was still behind Obamacare and, getting in a lick, said he'll go after Gov. Rick Scott for Medicare fraud. "Integrity matters," Crist says.
