Rubio, Meek take turns defining Charlie Cristby George Bennett | May 10th, 2010
Republican Senate hopeful Marco Rubio’s campaign is making much of this Wall Street Journal report that Democratic Senate Leader Harry Reid phoned Republican-turned-indie Gov. Charlie Crist last week in a possible “sign of cooperation” between Crist and Dems.
Democratic Senate candidate Kendrick Meek’s campaign, meanwhile, pointed to this three-month old NewsMax.com article in which Crist, then competing for the GOP primary nomination, called himself “anti-tax, pro-life, pro-gun Republican” and invoked Ronald Reagan a couple times.
Expect a lot more of this in the months to come. Rubio’s camp wants Crist to divide the Democratic vote. Meek’s team wants Crist to split Republicans.
