Nan Rich agrees with Crist: He doesn't have to release wife's tax return

Nan Rich has plenty of disagreements with Charlie Crist, who has refused to debate her and generally acted as if his Democratic rival doesn't exist. But on the question of Crist releasing his wife's tax return Rich agrees: He doesn't have to.

"She's not running for office," Rich said in an interview.

Rich said she hasn't decided about her own tax returns, but that as a state legislator she has long filed financial disclosure reports.

We asked Rich about the Progressive Choice group that is attacking Crist in mailers and on the radio. Rich said she has no idea about the group other than what she has read in the news. "I have nothing to do with them." But she doubts it's a Republican front.

"I like their message. It's a very accurate analysis" of Crist's history as a Republican.

UPDATE: Rich tweeted: "@learyreports We're in a fight to protect a woman's "Right to Choose." Charlie shouldn't trivialize those words 2 discuss Carol's tx return."
