John McCain says Charlie Crist would be 'very competitive' candidate for governor
Sen. John McCain says Charlie Crist would be a tough candidate if he decides to challenge Gov. Rick Scott, as expected.
"There are a lot of people who thought he did a good job when he was governor," McCain told the Tampa Bay Times. "Everything I hear from my friends in Florida is he's going to be very competitive."
McCain said it was a couple months ago when last spoke with Crist -- who got passed over for Sarah Palin in McCain's 2008 presidential run -- and added that he's not surprised Crist became a Democrat. "He was real angry with the whole scenario that took place."
Would you help his campaign? "I couldn't do that. But I'm not sure I could campaign against him."
