“You know, when he was running for reelection for president, nobody thought he’d win. He was down in the polls. That happens from time to time.”

Crist was introduced by America’s Most Wanted host John Walsh, who is looking beyond Crist’s 2010 U.S. Senate race.
“We need Charlie Crist in the U.S. Senate. I have a game plan for him. I want him to go right on the Senate Judiciary (Committee), with Patrick Leahy and Orrin Hatch, etc, etc. I want him to kick some ass up there on the Judiciary. He has 22 years of experience. He’s run everything you can on a state level and then I figure he’d be a very good candidate for United States president.”
