Charlie Crist, the former Republican governor who’s now the leading Democratic contender for the job, will speak to a Forum Club of the Palm Beaches lunch at the Kravis Center today.

Republican Gov. Rick Scott‘s campaign is making sure that whatever Crist says won’t go unanswered.

Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera will attend “and will be available to reporters following the event,” according to an advisory from Scott’s re-election campaign.

    Ghee – If D.Rick Scottw as doing sooooooooooo great – why are scott’s re-election numbers in the toilet? despite having a tea party war chest full of ill-gotten dollars that still can’t be the governor’s mansion twice?

    If the race were between “Sponge Bob” and Governor Scott. I would vote for the man who has the love of children and their well being at heart.

    Run “Sponge Bob” run.

    Even though he may live at the bottom of the sea. His morals are still higher then the ethics of those of Gov. Scott.

    On just the issue’s of Medical Cannabis and senior arcades is reason enough for me to vote against the G.O.P. this election.

    I guess if you are not a dem you get blackballed by the pb post. My last two comments never made it and it was nice. I am an independent who will never vote dem again after all the race baiting and racists calls on the morning show yesterday. Crist is a loser. He self appointed himself as the dem runner.

    Who, and what is crist today? If you don’t like it, just wait, he’ll change again. He is a poll driven liar, just like bill clinton, but who, or what, is giving him the bj’s?
