Marco Rubio: Charlie Crist Is a ‘Phony,’ He’s Been On ‘Every Side of Every Single Issue’
Marco Rubio Hits Back at Charlie Crist For Calling the Republican Party Racist (NewsBusters)
Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) hit Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist for saying racism played a part in his decision to leave the Republican party Wednesday on Fox News.
Crist, in an interview yesterday with Fusion TV, said he left the Republican party because “I couldn’t be consistent with myself and my core beliefs and stay with a party that was so unfriendly toward the African-American president. I’ll just go there. You know, because I was a Republican and I saw the activists and what they were doing, it was intolerable to me.”
