Crist to meet with Gulf Coast guvs, Obama officials and tour oil leak HQby Dara Kam | May 3rd, 2010
Gov. Charlie Crist will check out the oil leak command post in Mobile tomorrow morning before meeting with the governors of Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama and a contingent of President Barack Obama administration officials.
Crist is scheduled to start off his day at the Escambia County Emergency Operations Center before heading to the Mobile Unified Command center, ground zero for federal, state and BP officials managing what could be the nation’s worst oil spill. En route to Alabama, he’ll fly over the oil leak and finish up with a meeting with the his fellow governors.
Crist expressed earlier today dissatisfaction with the petroleum giant’s response to the disaster.
Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink spoke even more strongly about the “confusion” she encountered at the command headquarters in Mobile.
Attorney General Bill McCollum vowed there will be litigation over the rapidly-growing leak.
All three Florida politicos are running for higher office: newly-independent Crist for U.S. Senate, Sink as the presumptive Democratic candidate for governor and McCollum the frontrunner in the GOP primary for governor.
