Crist supports new federal stimulus - just five days ago he didn't know listen08/10/10 Kate Bradshaw
WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:
Today Gov. Charlie Crist reacted to the news of the federal emergency school and medicaid package by way of statement noting he was grateful for and encouraged by the passage of the bill.
But in St. Petersburg last Thursday, WMNF asked the governor if he hoped the bill would clear the House.
"I donâ€™t know. Weâ€™ll have to wait and see," Crist said.
Last year Crist came under fire from the GOP for accepting federal stimulus dollars. The ex-Republican has in recent months been free from party ties, but faces a tightrope walk when it comes to wooing voters amid his US Senate campaign.
