A couple days ago, the Associated Press observed:
A sure sign that an election is a year away: Gov. Charlie Crist is changing again. The populist Republican governor is trying to convince people he's a conservative now ...
When Florida needs a full-time Governor, Charlie Crist has chosen to spend all his time furthering his political ambition as he lurches to the right so he has a chance of winning his Republican Primary. Just this week he spent much of his time on raising money and attacking his opponents instead of working to help create jobs and keep Floridians in their homes.
Last week, we set a goal to raise $10,000 in 10 days, in order to send a message to Charlie Crist in the way he understands: fundraising. I know with your help we can reach our goal by Friday, and not only send Crist a message but also build our party to help win next November:
We agree with Charlie Crist that part of the change we need in Tallahassee is for him to be out of the Governor's Office, but Crist is wrong to think he never has to show up to work as long as his name is still on the door. In times like these we need leaders, not politicians. Unless Crist is going to follow Sarah Palin's lead and resign so he can spend all his time promoting himself without hurting Florida, Charlie Crist should be working everyday for the people of Florida.
But Crist has proven time and time again that he is just another typical politician who only cares about himself. In fact, the only time Crist is focused on his priorities is when he is looking in the mirror.
That's why the change we need in Tallahassee is a Governor who is focused on rebuilding Florida's economy for the future, putting people back to work, and helping keep people in their homes. CFO Alex Sink has the experience to make that happen and, with your help, we can bring real change to the Governor's office.
But, we also don't need another conservative Republican saying no to health care reform, no to the President's Recovery Act, and no to the change we voted for last November, which is why we need to send Crist into retirement in 2010 by electing a Senator like Kendrick Meek.
We have great candidates that will help us continue to bring change in 2010, and the staff at the Florida Democratic Party is working everyday to build the infrastructure to win next November - with your help we can bring the right kind of change.
Please help us reach our goal of $10,000 by Friday and show Charlie Crist what kind of change we want.
Thank you for standing up to Charlie Crist and helping us reach our goal by tomorrow.
Florida Democratic Party
