WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:


Wednesday, Governor Charlie Crist said he never endorsed the $787 billion stimulus bill, when he spoke with Wolf Blitzer on CNN.

But on February 10th, Crist appeared with President Barack Obama in Ft. Myers touting the bill. The governor, who is also running for the US Senate seat vacated by Sen. Mel Martinez, even received backlash from some conservative counterparts on the issue. And on February 13, Crist told reporters outside of St. Petersburg’s City Hall that he did support the bill.

But at the University of South Florida today Crist spoke with WMNF and attempted to bring clarity to what appears to be classical political flip-flop.
