The real news from former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist’s (D) congressional campaign kick off was Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) crashing Crist’s party to blast him, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Said Jolly: “I care too much about this district, the institution of Congress, and who represents us to lay down and let this huckster walk into office. He’s a fraud. …He will tell you anything that you want to hear for the sake of trying to get your support.”
“Jolly is stepping down from the seat and running for U.S. Senate — and attacking Crist is pretty good politics in a competitive GOP Senate primary — largely because the south Pinellas district has been redrawn to overwhelmingly favor a Democrat.”
