Florida Debate Audience Breaks Into Laughter After Candidate Calls Hillary Clinton ‘Honest’ (Mediaite)
During a Florida congressional debate, the audience began to jeer and guffaw after one of candidates said he was voting for Hillary Clintonbecause of her honesty.
Republican Florida Congressman David Jolly is locked into a heated race with former Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democratic governor Charlie Christ in Florida’s 13th district. Monday night, the two candidates debated for the first time at St. Petersburg College.
“I am proud of Hillary Clinton. I think she’s been a very good Secretary of State, a very good senator from the state of New York,” Crist said when asked if he would vote for his party’s candidate. “The thing I like most about her is she is steady. I believe she is strong. I believe she is honest.” It was the last remark that caused a sudden swell of laughter.
