Text of Charlie Crist’s video:
“When you allowed me to serve as your governor, I worked to be the people’s governor every day. You the people were in charge.

You’ve seen the attacks — against full-time working people and their health care, against women and their doctors, against teachers, public schools and college affordability. And even against the simple act of casting your vote. It’s not working. Only you, the people, can end this nonsense and get us back to common sense. That’s the way forward. Tell me how I can help. Share your comments with me here. I’ll read every last one. I work for you the people — always have, and always will.
