Last week, former Florida Governor Charlie Crist announced he would not run for the U.S. Senate in 2016. Today, he endorsed the candidacy of U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy who entered the Democratic primary on Monday.
Here's the email from Crist:
As everyone knows, I have always made my priority putting the people of Florida first.
Next November I think it is essential that we elect a leader to the United States Senate who will do the same.
That is why today I am so proud to offer my enthusiastic endorsement of Congressman Patrick Murphy to be our next Senator! Click here to join me in saying “I’m in” for Patrick >>
Patrick has the energy, the integrity, and the passion to change how Washington works and actually get things done for the middle class families and seniors of our state. I consider Patrick a friend and I know his heart. He will always do what's best for Florida -- not what's best for the special interests.
As Governor, I fought to improve educational opportunities, protect our environment, and make sure that every Floridian has a shot at the American dream. I know those are the priorities Patrick will bring with him to the U.S. Senate, and that's why I hope you'll join me in supporting him today.
I know Patrick has the fight in him to take on Marco Rubio or whoever decides to enter this race. But he needs us standing with him.
