RealLibs endorses Charlie Crist for U.S. Senator
Floridians will choose a new Senator on November 2nd and their decision could shift the balance of power in Washington. There is one fact Floridians (especially Democrats and center-left voters) should keep in mind: This is not a three-way race. Democrat Kendrick Meek has no real chance of getting elected. This race is between Independent candidate Charlie Crist and Republican candidate Marco Rubio.
During his time as Governor of the Sunshine State, Charlie Crist has demonstrated what reaching across the aisle means. He’s a true maverick, and independent that will put policy ahead of partisan politics. He has a record to prove it. As governor of America’s fourth largest state, Charlie Crist has resisted the pressures from his former party’s powerful right-wing machine. He has adopted a moderate line on social issues, supported public education, and put forward pragmatic economic policies.
We urge Democrats to realize that a vote for Meek is a vote for Rubio and his extremist, right-wing agenda. It is still not too late for Mr. Meek to drop out of the race for the good of the state. We also urge independents and moderate Republicans to pull the lever for Charlie Crist.
We believe Governor Crist has served Florida well, and he
should have the chance to continue serving Florida in the U.S. Senate. On
November 2nd, vote for independence from the
two-party machine, vote for Charlie Crist.
