Florida GOP Slams Crist; Brevard Delegation Preps for Annual Meeting

On the eve of the 2014 Republican Party of Florida’s Annual Executive Meeting, the RPOF Chairman is slamming former Governor Charlie Crist’s new book.

"Charlie Crist’s new career as a fiction writer is exactly what we all expected out of one of the most opportunistic career politicians of all time,” said Lenny Curry. “Yet his attempt at re-writing history won’t erase the awful experience Floridians endured during his term as Governor.
“If he wants us to 'judge him by his deeds,’ Charlie will ultimately be judged by having the second highest jump in unemployment out of all 50 states, overseeing a $5.2 billion increase in Florida’s debt, and embracing failed Washington policies like Obamacare."

Crist, who’s memoir “The Party's Over: How the Extreme Right Hijacked the GOP and I Became a Democrat” will be released next month, is the former Republican Florida governor who announced his switch to the Democratic Party last November.
The RPOF is holding its annual meeting on Friday and Saturday at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando.

The Brevard delegation on the State Executive Committee is comprised of Barbara Davis, Chairman; Carlie Rogers, State Committeewoman; and Mike Thomas, State Committeeman.  Carlie Rogers is also the CD 8 Caucus Chair and as such, is a member of the Executive Board.
 “I’m looking forward to the RPOF Annual Meeting in Orlando and sharing plans and ideas with Republican State Executive Committee members from all over Florida in Committee Meetings, Congressional District Caucuses, and the Chairman’s Caucus,” Davis said.

“We are focused on re-electing Governor Rick Scott in November.  Under his leadership, Florida has dramatically lowered its unemployment rate, created over 446,300 private sector jobs, eliminated over 2,800 regulations, and cut business and property taxes.  As a member of the Host Committee, I will be attending a special Brunch with Governor Rick Scott Friday morning sponsored by Florida Republican Women.”

  1. There Curry goes again with the silliness. Crist had nothing to do with the jump in unemployment; that was the result of a national economic crisis. The increase in Florida's debt was part of a normal economic cycle, and Crist was only responsible for 3.4 billion of it; see Politifact's expose, "Rick Scott says debt was up $5.2B under Charlie Crist, down $2B under Scott." Embracing Obamacare? Didn't a guy named Rick Scott come out in support of the Medicaid expansion?

    And Davis is an expert in fiction if anyone is. 60 to 70 percent of the lowered unemployment rate is due to frustrated people leaving the workforce. Economists predicted Florida would create 1 million jobs by 2017 regardless of who was governor; 446,300 is actually behind pace, and especially behind Scott's modified (but forgotten) promise of 1.7 million jobs.

    Cutting regulations? A big number. How many of those regulations were doing good? The details are important, but Davis doesn't seem to want to share them.

    Business and property taxes? Gee, but Scott has waited three years to get after that auto tag tax...just in time for the election.

    Rick Scott's record is a terrible one for anyone who checks the facts.

  2. I agree with Independant Thinker and Christ is way higher on my list than our OUTGOING Governor, Rick Scott

  3. it was easy for Scott to lower the unemployment rate, since he inflated it to try and discredit Obama.

  6. Prime time Charlie had his time "in the sun" and now we need new non-professional politicians in this office. We need Statesmen, not these professional attorney politicians. They don't represent anyone other than their own agendas. I won't vote for Crist.....
