Charlie Crist roots for his new team at Congressional Baseball Game

by George Bennett | June 14th, 2013

U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, and former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist at Congressional Baseball Game in Washington on Thursday.

Republican-turned-independent-turned Democratic former Gov. Charlie Crist was in Washington supporting his new team at Thursday night’s Congressional Baseball Game for Charity.

Crist posed with Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, in a picture that Murphy’s campaign circulated along with news that the freshman House member had belted an RBI double in the first inning. Murphy may be a rookie, but he showed a veteran’s awareness of political visuals, wearing a jersey from Indian River State College in his Treasure Coast swing district.

The Democrats shellacked the Republicans 22-0.

“Is there any better proof we need more young & Hispanic Republicans in Congress?” said Miami-based Republican strategist and CNN contributor Ana Navarro on her Twitter account.

On his Twitter account, Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Okeechobee, managed to find a silver lining for the GOP: “Didn’t go our way but raised a lot of money for some great charities.”
